Suitcase Book

At first I thought I would leave the brown, plain suitcase surface like it was. So I started working on the interior parts – the pages – all the time keeping in mind the underlying motifs: life-as-a-travel and the art of packing your suitcase/living is to keep it simple and avoid carrying unnecessary, unimportant stuff that slows you down.

Nevertheless – suddenly – I felt the inclination to totally transform the outside of the suitcase. I wanted it to look like something that has been “on the road” for a long time… and carries a lot of experience and knowledge… so here it is after a total make-over…

    Kære Hanne

    Totalt himmelsk! Hvor er det bare godt. Dejligt at se det samle sig. Og så fik den alligevel en tur udenpå. Rigtig godt. Og sikke en engel!
    Det kribler i mine fingre. Efter at få lov at få den i hænderne en gang mere. Få lov til at lægge lidt mere af min sjæl i den, bare lige en side mere.
    Men nu er den i Gullas hænder. Spændende at se hvor rejsen så går hen!

    Kærlig hilsen
    Lis

    Hvor er det skønt det du har lavet. Og du er sprunget ud som engel – herligt ! Kufferten og dine tankerne bag er så inspirerende.
