After watching a video of Randi Parkhurst, http://vimeo.com/7694315 paper artist and book maker, Diane and I both thought we would like to attempt to make a similar construction. So together we set about to do just that and after watching the video, minutely, frame by frame, Diane suggested we start with the smallest set of boxes and books. We agreed to meet each week, also constructing independently at home, buying nothing new, using only what we had stored. (This was hard and I failed early on) I had saved the soap wrappers from many gifts and thought they would be ideal for highlights and features. The concertina in front lives in the small box to the rear right, and will contain Randi's details. The other concertina has two covers and contains words to do with patience. This is the beginning.
