Judging a Book


I came across an article recently for a call for submissions for the 'Judging a Book Exhibition' to be held at The Winding Stair Bookshop in Dublin for Culture Night. This book had just been returned as undelivered from the states where I had sent it to a magazine. I thought I might as well put it to some use and sent it off (hopeful :0)) . I was delighted to learn that it was featured in the exhibition recently. The book is an old fusty book which I had found and it was glued together and altered to form a canvas for an image transfer of my nan as a young girl. (Click for a larger view)

Wonderful work Carrie, and so many beautiful techniques used. I love the image on Fabric of your Nan.
I am not surprised your book was shown in the exhibition.
