Homage to the Book
I love the written word and I cherish books, as objects and as channels of communication across vast distances of time and space. This little "book page", Homage to the Book, is all hand-embroidered with a tiny sewn bowl "illustration" at the bottom right. That little bowl is filled to overflowing with stitches...the knowledge and outpouring of countless generations, handed down to us, simply and gently on the pages of a book.
