"Ephemera Collector" by Laura Gable [reposting]

This book is in the current show at the Allied Arts Gallery through May 30th, so I am reposting this previous entry.


Crow / Ephemera Collector was inspired by my book artist friends. It evolved from being a simple small oil painting on the back of a bamboo box. Inside it has a few small "found objects' that I've collected along the street, much like a crow would do. The companion handmade book with pamphlet stitch is tucked inside-- it includes hand written prose which praises the worthiness of this magical, curious creature.
