Moon Dance

One of the things I enjoy the most is combining antique paper - in this case, fashion engravings from the June 1865 issue of Godey's Lady's Book - with newer papers. The background, moon face and text are from recycled proof copies of modern children's books. The golden planet on the right came from a vintage pop-up book about space. Putting these odd heads atop the dresses evokes the often strange juxtapositions seen in Victorian advertising. 4.75" x 4.75" on archival mat board. Matted to fit a standard 9" x 9" frame. [SOLD]
