Latest work: "Japanese Paperbound Books Photomontage"

There’s nothing like the soft, worn feel of an ancient Japanese paper-bound book. I was lucky enough to go to Kyoto and amazingly a number of these old books followed me home. Torn, wrinkled, folded, soft, tattered pages are a delight to hold, lovely to see. I hope I’ve captured their textural quality here in this photomontage, which I uploaded to Fine Art America this morning.

A wonderful piece, Carol... love the textures, tones and Asian influences. It (and your comments) remind me of that special trip to Kyoto. Thanks for the memories!

It was indeed a special trip, wasn't it? On many levels. Please say hi to Ann for me.
