Three New Accordion Books

February 4th, 2010

I have finished three new books and put detailed page shots here on the webpage:http://web.me.com/nettles3/Artists_Books_2010/The_Fig_Leaf.html
While I was in Italy, I became curious about the use of the fig leaf, so I created this first book about its history in art.

The other two books were inspired by a recent trip to Ireland. The coasts of this small country are especially beautiful, as can be seen in Irish Bramble.

On a rainy day I visited Glendalough with its sixth century monastery. The Round Tower is based on the belief that it provided protection to the monks from Viking invaders.round-open.jpg
