Summer of slants

I’m pretty happy about summer flying by. I can’t wait to say goodbye to sticky, humid weather and hello to light jackets and scarves. Meanwhile, I’ve been keeping myself busy.

In April, a friend took me to the Antiquarian Book Fair and I was introduced to the world of collecting books. I didn’t know what to expect but I found many inspiring books from the olden days that I wanted to spin into my own work.

This is one of them:

The Slant Book’s images and text are also slanted on the slanted pages to tell a story about what happens when a stroller, with a baby boy inside, is inadvertently┬árolled down a long hill. What a genius idea! How could I use that slant to tell a story in my own way?

1. Ghost Seasons
In this case, the slant lets me showcase all the seasons at once.

2. Ghost City
Here, the slant make the buildings look more epic. I think this book looks best open on display.
