Collage Book Workshop: registration open at Newspace, Portland, Oregon.

February 19th, 2013

The Fine Art Collage Book: Saturday April 20, 9-4 at Newspace.
This sophisticated, but simple book structure gives you an opportunity to synthesize some of the photographs, text, assorted papers and two-dimensional items that you have accumulated over the years. Five stocky pages will be created covering them entirely with your collages. They will then be “perfect bound” along one edge with a simple technique using a strip of leather. The resultant book is strong and opens flat. Indentations can be made for small 3-D objects as well.

To register, visit their website at: http://newspacephoto.org/class/collage-book

There have been three editions of Mountain Dream Tarot. The first two decks were printed in single-colors of Purple(Upper Arcana), Blue(Swords), Green(Wands), Brown(Pentacles) and Red(Cups.) The first edition (burgundy box) was produced in 1975 and is highly collectible. The second (black box 2001) went out of print last year. The latest tinted version is now available and comes in a drawstring bag. Pictured here is a comparison of the Tower card.
