Its like Kim Thittitachi's latest book with the most wonderful textured cover, all smoothe and warm feeling.....which is the lamest reason to buy a book...right? lol
Will let you know what its like when Ive had time to read it through.
One of her college workbooks interested me very much.
Rachel had been researching our continual concern with beauty and the pursuit of perfection through clinical intervention and had explored how beauty is expressed in other cultures.
The pages below struck me as interesting in the way she had used nails, pins and plastic straps inserted in the paper.
I dont know why, but scarification and tattoes always remind me of cave art.... wonder what Freud would have said about that!
I love fabric boxes, I've never made any but I did like these two above that Rachel had made. And I adore the mother of pearl buttons used on the lower one, with the threads all perfectly toned to the buttons colours. Each of these had personal family phrases stitched around the sides, making them a family heirloom for the future, nice that.
