Look closely and you'll notice erased writing to the left of the date that was penciled onto an endpaper long ago. Found writing from notes in margins and doodles on inside book covers to inscriptions on title pages and messages on envelopes, intrigues me. It adds a tangible bit of history yet is so often out of context that it also adds mystery.

The background is a mash-up of vintage and recycled papers: a ledger sheet, the inside of a security envelope, tissue paper, a vintage map, a section of a flower illustration and endpaper - topped by the birds (one, a gel transfer) that give the piece its name. 5" x 5" inches on acid-free board. {SOLD}
