The Wisdom of My Grandmothers

ABC11 colbert 2 a.jpgABC11 colbert 2c JPG.jpg

“This book is a celebration and appreciation of what three older women generously taught me as a child.”

The Wisdom of My Grandmothers was created using wooden covers that were distressed with metal
objects (hammers, chains, and type) to give them a sense of being very old. Signatures were created and
filled over time with hand written memories and photo transfered photographs and found images. It is
coptic bound with wooden covers to resemble an old prayer book.

wood, waxed linen, milk paint, photo transfers, Rives paper
