I am a huge reader. I have worked in a bookstore for almost 15 years. When I bought this Tim Holtz folio I knew I had to make it all about books and reading. This was a huge project. It took me way longer than I thought it would. I wanted to be sure each page was just right.
Here come the photos!
This is the front cover. A while back I bought a card catalog. It is chock full of cards and I knew I had to use some on here.
This is what happens when you remove the elastic band. Books!
Pardon my hand. I couldn't get the tab to stay open without it.
That glasses sticker kills me! I would wear those glasses if I could find a pair.
Tiny handmade books.
This image is from Graphic 45. I painted it using watercolors.
Another catalog card.
The library card is a German flashcard.
Here are some close ups of the flaps. Both of the small top and bottom flaps have a card catalog paper as the background and a bookshelf as the foreground. I cut out a few extra books and popped them up to add dimension.
The back cover.
I love how this tuned out.
