This photo was the result of an unintended long exposure.
I love the gold, green and turquoise colours. I spent a lot of time on Saturday producing these little books. I am not sure if they qualify as a Zine or not but they are certainly little books. The time was spent in working out how to translate a little altered children's board book into a photocopiable and double sided book. Various methods were tried and failed, before I came up with this one. It may not look very complicated-and it is not-but the way of getting there was!
Anyway, this is the thing I am giving away-four copies of my little book. It has been a long time in the making. I gessoed the board book at least six months ago. It sat around until about Halloween time, when I used white gesso to paint ghost shapes on each of the pages. It sat around again until I drew faces on the first four ghosts. After more sitting around an idea finally came to me. I finished it, scanned it, arranged it, and printed it. I watched 'Angels and Demons' for most of the time I was printing and assembling which was good as it is a very long film!
The ghosts have advice to give. It is very simple advice, but good I think. I will put the rest of the books in my Etsy shop-the first thing to have gone in there for a long time!
If you would like to be put in a hat (not literally of course) for a little book, then please leave a comment here over the next week. Thanks!
