Am I bad?
I'm not sure if I should post this or not.
But, let me confess: I make craft projects where I use pages from old books. Many projects. Very old books.
Like these tags with illustrations taken from a 150 years old book with descriptions of every major city and it's buildings in this country. Sheets are very thin, so I glue it to card board, cut it, decorate it with white paint and glitter and finally trim it with mat silver ribbon or tassel. I have a crush on these colours and textures together, sigh... And, ehm... pangs of conscience because I ruin this book.
My vague excuse is that this book was going to end its days in the waste bin. It belonged to an illustrator friend of mine. He was clearing up his studio and took this to an antiquarian who rejected it. Then asked me if I wanted it.
