BIRD BOOK
BIRD BOOK
Hardbound book–Image Wrap
7" x 7"
2017

Bird embroidery, photography, and book design by the artist.

Continuing my interest in a sense of place, I have created a twenty-one page, unbound, boxed Bird Book containing portraits of birds commonly observed on my property. The black pages of dyed cotton organdy measure 7.5" x 7.5". The birds vary between 3" x 5" in height and width. (Unique artist's book) In 2017, the embroidered birds were photographed and BIRD BOOK was created. It is a hardbound book published by blurb.com.

Come, fill the cup, and in the fire of Spring
Your Winter garment of repentance fling.
The bird of time has but a little way to flutter ---
And the bird of time is on the wing.
Omar Khayyam

Bird by bird, Buddy.
Just take it
bird by bird.
