Lavender from my garden, a vintage book folded, a flower made from reclaimed old book pages, heart shaped stones found on a beach during summers while visiting my homeland, Greece.
My mother's presence is always felt, especially in places I wish she had seen.
In my thoughts and heart she is always there, and in this shadow box her face at a young age appears as a reminder of her love for me.

As a Book Arts practitioner as well as a person who loves all kinds of books, I am observing this World Book Day by sharing one of my "keepsakes" series composition, expressing my love not only for book content, but also for book form and all its derivatives...
Happy World Book Day!
