A book of three seasons

During the recent move of my studio, I unearthed  some of my old art works which were  done my art school days. One of them were the little  booklets of how to use the school l library. One day, I found them outside the library in a boxful of them as discard. They are less than six inch square with twelve pages. I immediately attracted to them because of the size and picked up a large handful as not to let them end up in the landfill.

I created a different screen images for each page and  printed in one color except for the centerfold with two. My finished remade booklets were popular with my classmate which I had given most away.

I was delighted to found the few remaining copies of the booklet  in my studio. Right away, I wanted to give it another make over.

My slow studio move took over six months started in winter, spring and into summer. During these times, each night after supper for relaxation I would work on my paper cut on the little booklet. Sometimes, I would worked on it few night in a row but then stopped for days or even week without  touching it.

Eventually when my move was done  I was able to finished the little booklet as well.
