This found small piece of driftwood, sculptural and figurative in form, was the start of this concept. I had kept it for many years before using it as a bookmark in this way.  I wrote the poem and then photographed the driftwood from several angles with high contrast lighting to exaggerate it as an art object on a background using a small section of a monochrome painting.

The cover is handmade paper incorporating text characters and hand sewn using waxed cotton thread. Printed on Lokta paper using inkjet printer.
