Handmade Trash Books.

I have heaps of  travel catalogs that I hate to throw away so I recycle them into notebooks, journals and artist books .I make each book cover as a separate collage piece – OOAK.

I re-use all my jotting and doodling paper I keep beside the computer so when I get a pile I create a book. In my books you may come across scribbles an idea a thought budgets old exhibition invites artist postcards catalog covers pages botched print- outs advertising materials junk mail magazine cut-outs-stickers wallpaper tags and baguette bags from Paris computer keyboard keys old cheque  butts and more……I wire bound them with my binding machine and sometimes I join them with punched holes with ribbons , wire,cord just whatever is around.

They can be used for doodles and sketching to jot things down ideas thoughts lyrics words travel or artists journal whatever u want.

It’s fun making them,I must make more…
