A Spoon and A Glove

The book collaboration is finally finished...(that was a long weekend!)
It took a long time and lots of experimentation to devise the spine for the pages and then I ruined one book by gluing a page upside down....I won't do that again in a hurry.  Trying to photograph it was a challenge due to usual lighting issues.  I used a reflector made out of tin foil in the end which helped.  So here it is in all its glory.

 The front page

 which opens out to become the Glove and the front of the Spoon

Information about our book:

'Following a democratic decision to challenge ourselves, we chose a glove and a spoon as the subject matter for this collaboration.  There was resistance on all our parts as we were initially each drawn to objects of a more organic nature.

In leaving our personal desires behind we decided upon those two objects and sought to challenge our personal needs to stay within our comfort zone.  We gravitated towards a poetic rhythm and searched hard in this response to both objects'

The back page which opens out and

folds in.

By the way when you sign in to your dashboard the POD blog should be there and then you should click on the blog title and it should bring up the various options avail to you on the screen - the same as per when you click on your own blog title. I am assuming thats what you mean?
