Baltimore Library

Yesterday, librarians from my local library
asked if I could donate a handmade book. 
It would be the center piece on their holiday wreath.
Handmade artist's books
I went home and reviewed my ooks and
decided to make a new one.  I wanted
it to be vibrant, golden, and fun.
Once upon a time . . . ,
Based on children's fairy tales, my book
began, "Once upon a time . . . "
The cover and endpapers were created with 
gold leaf on kozo paper and embossed 
with silver and red mica.

I delivered the finished book to the library this afternoon,
20 hours later.
