Drenched in Verse & Paint

My “book” is partially finished. It houses three smaller books. I finally finished the book covers last week. They each represent motifs of my thought process, in a sense. My favorite one expresses my personal motto, canvas salutation/disclaimer. Another one plays homage to the poetry/idea book I have kept since my creative writing class eight years ago. The final one is a companion to the blog. I plan on archiving some posts and experimenting with ideas, space providing.  I will take a picture of the three books later.

    The “4” doesn’t represent anything siginificant other than for some reason I’ve always liked the number. I wanted the lid of the book shaped box to represent the door[“my mental”] apartment. The door is open revealing the contents of the “room”. I especially like how the interior looks like a bookcase. It wasn’t easy getting this set to cooperate and pose. I had a tough time keeping the books from falling down so I had to sort of prop them up again the interior page.

Love Write,

  1. I like the idea of books within a book. It makes it all so exciting when you think of opening it.
    Good idea to have a book handy for jotting down ideas as they occur in your mind.
    Lovely creation!!!
