A Catalogue of Headgear for the Avian Set
This little art book is a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch hand needle threaded book of 20 pages that fits into a wood veneer book purse. The outside of the purse is stained, with part of an old leather book cover affixed to the front and then painted with acrylic. The purse itself is 4 x 4 inches by 1 3/4 inches deep. The book pages are made from rag papers with collage and painted images and the text is printed on vellum on my home computer. The whole shebang is a precursor to a larger version of Avian Costumes. This little “catalog” is a listing of avian headgear with descriptions, price and website for ordering. All tongue in beak, of course.
