More Inclusions (and not a map in sight)

I spent some of this week working on more things to put in the pockets of the map book.

Most of them have to do with divination/fortune telling/magic.

I still have to glue the backs and fronts of the playing and tarot cards together.

I tried printing them on card stock, but it was difficult to match front and back images properly. Feeding the card through the printer was a bit unpredictable due to its thickness/stiffness. Also, the card stock was very white and looked jarring with all the other beige/cream/off-white papers I am using.

Circles were a recurring theme this week. (Just a hint: if you are looking up ‘the wheel of fortune’ on the Internet, be sure to include the definite article in your search terms —otherwise you get pages and pages of links to stuff about the TV show.)

Some of the inclusions will be books in their own right. Here’s a little accordion.

I also wrote out wishes and folded stars. I suffered briefly from panic yesterday when one of the on-line wishing sites I collect wishes from was inoperable for the entire day. It is back this morning, to my great relief.

You can, of course, send me wishes directly (and anonymously) by going here.

  3. looks like the finished book/book/collection will be a pleasure to explore! Will you have a connecting text or is it up to the reader to connect the dots?
