Collage done inside a ruled, soft cover Moleskine; images are scans from my childhood reference books (the background is the Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt, the various minerals are from the DK Eyewitness Book Crystal & Gem, illustrated birds are by Kenneth Lilly in the Animal Atlas); quote is by e.e. cummings.

Making these collages is a nostalgic experience. I grew up studying the pictures in these books and, while looking through for good pieces, I recall bits of my childhood. This is the second I've made thus far and I plan on continuing the series.
