Butterfly Books

At long last, my Butterfly Books collage has been printed on its BookCrossing book label! I did the artwork about 2 years ago... and it's finally available on the CafePress Supply Store. As always, my collages are all paper (and mostly recycled paper at that) - no paint!

Some close up detail - see, the mountains are made of books!

The yellow book has 'Off to see the world' on its cover...

More books flapping off to foreign shores!

I think the original artwork will be up for auction (all proceeds go to support BookCrossing). The artwork is unframed, on heavy board, and is about 20" x 30" (ie a reasonable size). You can read more about it (and me) on my Artist's Bio Page.

Additional Info : OK, I've just heard back from Heather at BookCrossing; she says they will set up an auction sometime, but it's not likely to be soon. I'll announce it on this blog when the time comes :)
