First books of 2015 completed, the England leg of the Grand Tour series I've been putting together. In contrast to the previous France and Germany editions, the tickets used for the covers of these are some London transport ones from the 1960's. This was because I wanted some that had come to me from someone else's collection, as the others had, rather than collecting any deliberately. The size and used quality of them works well with the torn paper pages inside. I really like that each of these books is unique as the text and image combinations vary and cannot be repeated.
So the set so far looks like this, only Italy to add if the chance arises (ie I get any tickets!).
As before, I'll keep one copy and give one to the person who donated the tickets, so that leaves 3 to take to my next book fair, Artists' Bookmarket at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh 21-22 February.
