Behind the Scenes and Under Cover

In February, little things are happening in the ground, under the ice, in the air  We all know winter loves to take its curtain calls, but behind the scenes, the stage is being set for spring.

We made tiny books, 3"x3," about tiny changes, choosing between accordion, flutter and pamphlet style with papers we painted.  We made covers with sturdy book board that we cut (a hard business!)  But the good surprise in this taxing effort came when we posed the books for photos.  The heavy boards attached to the delicate paper sometimes caused the pages to spring up in unexpected ways.
