The new book continues along

I have kept the bits and pieces for this book out in the studio - lying around where I can see them and where they can begin their little conversations with me as we go along.  Every now and again the pages let me know where we're headed, and what I need to do next. It's a comforting way to build a book; working with the materials in a friendly way.

Without words I am trying to find ways to tell a story.  For many this is utterly natural and their place of beginning; for me it is not. I still want my book to be very 'me' if that makes sense; I don't want it to be a book that doesn't look like I made it; so I can't just go drawing things because that isn't really who I am.

So I am making marks and using symbols...





And cutting out little windows and printing up some images.



Susan and I have agreed that the books will meet on 20 August, and given I'm away for  a week between now and then, I do need to get a wriggle on!
