Her eyes betrayed nothing

For me, the history of the paper used in a collage is as interesting as the finished piece. But, again, that's probably my Inner Librarian talking. The combo here is the cover of a damaged early 20th century book "The Language and Poetry of Flowers" (DeWolfe, Fiske & Co., Boston) that belonged to my late mother-in-law; a page of a sooty dictionary for teletype operators; and recycled images from book publisher catalogs (from the era before most of the catalogs went online, in other words, just a few years ago). Paper, cloth, wax. 5" x 7" on acid-free paper. {Sold}
