Wordless Storybook Pages 23 and 24

In 2021 I completed a wordless artist book for my little granddaughter, who was about a year old at the time. I produced it by converting a discarded kid’s library book, using the same process I’ve used for similar books in the past.

Look here if you want to see more about how I make these books and to view one of my past books.

This particular volume does have a story, though. I had been working on it off and on for a long time and getting nowhere. Other projects kept coming along. One day I took it out to see about finishing it up and to consider what I might write to accompany the images. It struck me that it was fine just as it was, without words.

And I thought my granddaughter might like it when she is a little older, and she can make up stories to go with the pictures herself.

Like the content, the cover has no words. The book has no title. I guess it can be called whatever the reader wants.

Here are the next two pages. Want to make up your own story?


Now you’ve reached the end of the book. Thank you for reading, viewing, and imagining!

          Yes, She scribbles and draws (according to her 2 year old skill.). Maybe someday she might like to add to the book, I will make she sure knows it is a book that can be written in and she can be free to do what she would like.

      Yes. In our small town library, in the early days, we had these cards. I always checked to see who’d read the book before me and quite often I knew them. It also gave me a kind of reference for the book, if I’d like it or not, as to who else it had appealed to.

      Thank you. I have made quite a few of this kind of book, and it is so much fun to do, very freeing. And I do like the idea the discarded books are not getting thrown out, even if they are sort of changing personalities…
