Description

This book was created as part of the International Sketchbook Project in 2012. A blank sketchbook was sent to each participant. The book was disassembled, pages added, a cover created, collage pieces assembled and the book resewn, This book is sewn through three holes, with the binding thread tied off on the back cover and then wound around the book into a bow. This book was designed and completed to represent a scrapbook kept by children during the 1960’s, using similar techniques. Original family documents were scanned and laminated, and added as collage additions to the book. This sketchbook is dedicated to the memory of the artists’ parents, Ruth Domsalla Anderson and Kenneth Lee Anderson.
