Devon Altered Book Project

We seem to have become quite relaxed with our altered book project as deadlines seem to have been abandoned.  I am way behind with my latest book but I have lots of work to do at the moment with commissions, setting up my on-line shops and an exhibition to prepare for.  Also, the book that I am having to work on next belongs to one of my daughters and I want to make it as nice as I can. I have some pictures to share of my efforts on the last book that I had which belongs to one of my younger daughters who has bravely organised the whole project. The theme was 'Strange/Magical Places':

This was influenced by the drawings of Truda Lane. My lovely Mum and I had a wonderful day in Totnes and met two of my beautiful girls. We ate lunch, drank tea and raided the craft and vintage shops. I bought a copy of 'Lifelines', published by Green Books, and immersed myself in Truda's lovely drawings on the way home on the train.

I had been watching the inspirational Satish Kumar's 'Natural World' DVD about Dartmoor. It reminded me of how much I love and miss the moor with its Tors and the River Dart. When I was a child the moor unlocked my imagination and I would be lost in the stories inside my head. I long for its wildness and mystery when I'm away and this was a little tribute to it.
