Handmade Vintage Wallpaper Book
A large handmade book I recently created from vintage wallpapers
vintage French magazine scraps
archival matte board and gummed tape
It’s strong tough and a little rough
Over 60 pages of vintage wallpapers, watercolor papers, paint splotches and tabs in between
Size 23cm x 16cm.
Whats under your Bonnet?
This was a fun project…I used a vintage 1960’s New idea magazine to cut out found words, phrases and images. Looking at my finished piece now, I can see the composition is all over the place with no central focal point and may change it in the future
I found the articles really funny and sometimes quite pathetic, on how women were seen and treated 50 years ago
Being a baby boomer myself, I remember going to rallies and protests for women’s rights in the 60s-70s
It makes you realize how far women have come since…
