3 Muses! oriental

Asian book
cover

Back cover
2 page spread
1 page!I have been working on this altered book for 4 years, slowly adding my pages. I love asian art and feel a connection to the colors and style of oriental art. A lot of the papers used are from my aunts who traveled the orient in the 30's and 40's. I have incorporated their souvenirs into the book.
