Description

Acknowledgments

I tore at the pages and then burnt their edges before encasing in wax. I decided the leave the word Acknowledgments, seemed like the right thing to do

Note the quote on the back. I created the border using furniture tacks. I like their irregular shapes. Front is tied to the back on either side with a piece of string.

All books in this series are first steeped in beeswax to permeate the layers and encapsulate in wax. I believe this helps in the preservation. This piece is free standing.
