This is a mixed media piece I have done using the book binding from a 1928 copy of "Flying Sails"

This book was in very poor shape, almost completely separated from the binding, so i took it a bit further and decided to use it in conjunction with photographic images to form a mixed media 3-D piece. The book binding has gorgeous artwork of an old sailing ship on high seas, a beautiful sky and birds too, and is covered in a lovely embossed and textured leather like material.

You will be the only person who will have this piece of art. There are no prints made or 3-D copies.

The binding is flattened, allowing the center part to stand up a bit, the edges inked and the whole piece attached to a stiff board. The board back is then covered with decorative paper and a hanger is affixed.

The photograph of a sailing ship started out as a black and white and was sepia toned and i added a bit of 'character' to give it an old time look. The photograph has a velvety matte finish and is affixed to a board too and secured to corrugated cardboard that has been inked as well and has tiny brads at the corners.

There are 4 gold and black studs affixed to the image of the painted ship on the right side.

The piece sits out from the wall about a quarter inch giving it a nice 3 dimensional look to it .

The piece measures 14.5" wide and 9.5" tall and comes ready to hang.

It is a true one of a kind piece of art for your home.

Thanks for stopping in and having a look around!
