Feeling Good

Quite hooked on artists books at the moment. Recently I finished one for Italy – for which I was lucky to find a nice box for cover in my basement. It gave me an idea for some new works.

I realised I’ve got quite a collection of boxes and cases, and decided to do a little series of artists’ books designed to fit inSo this week, the creative process started in reverse order: First the cover – then the content.

My immediate choice was this bordeaux red little vintage box that has been a case for, yes, what do I know? Definitely something precious and valuable. 

I made the pages of some remaining sheets from a previous project – and was already well started. Folded it into a dense little accordion, painted, glued, stitched, added a few cut outs from various floras and atlas and stuff. And imprinted the lyrics of another of my favorite songs “Feeling good” – and yes – right now that’s exactly the way I feel.
