"Book of Numbers"

This "Book of Numbers" began life as a colorful children's board book - all pages of which are now covered up and completely altered.

The numbers 1-12 are each given a separate page, complete with a vintage photo showing that particular number of people in the photograph. Because of the sunlight on the photos, it is not always easy to count all the people in the photo.  But trust me, they are there.

  1. How fun! I love working in board books too. They're a great canvas. I love the idea of your book and the wonderful vintage ephemera. Your work is great!
    I enjoy it so! :-)
