Take Me Away: 1

Water damage from burst basement pipes almost convinced me to trash a 1922 David McKay Co. edition of "The Adventures of Pinocchio" that belonged to my late mother-in-law. Instead, I removed the end papers and created a pair of collages with them. This one features a vintage map; images from a recent Monet calendar; and shapes hand-punched from recycled greeting cards.  5" x 5" on archival mat board. {Sold}

Oh, in the other collage, a boy replaces the girl and he's propped up on his elbows reading on an adjoining window seat. Also 5" x 5" on archival mat board.
