Behind the trellis
Forest of my mind
Ghostly leaves of the canopy
Hungarian Rhapsody
Old Wishes
Turn over a new leaf

My collection of compacts and cigarette cases took on a new meaning when I decided to use them as containers for a series of small books. Treasures within treasures. The books use various printing methods and the text in each typed on an old typewriter adds to the vintage feel.
