library card art

FIVE original ink drawings on vintage library cards (the kind that used to sit in a pocket attached to the back inside cover of the book, and would be stamped by the librarian at sign-out)

marks from the card's use (signatures, stamps, etc) appear in the background

the cards with the most age (sun yellowing, stains, etc) and marks (from use) are the ones I like best, with the history showing through

usually 3 x 5 inches

packaged in clear plastic sleeves with a decorative card top –– perfect as a gift

can be used as bookmarks (they can be handled freely)
or tucked into a greeting/birthday/Christmas cards (a great inexpensive but still original/unique gift)
or works of art to framed (three small, simple frames and you have a nice set to decorate a hallway or small room)

obsolete objects repurposed as art

recycling meets vintage

everything shipped comes with an extra art surprise

every thing, every soul, becomes dyed with the colour of its use, its thoughts, the world
