Book Bytes covers are made from tea bag paper — the actual paper that holds the tea when in hot water – a quality helpful in standing up to what comes next!
Next the paper was marbleized by floating paint on shaving cream — thank you Liz Sherwood for inviting me to that PaperWorks gathering. The finish? A layer of sparkle paint.
The inside paper holds one of a number of quotes from Journey of Dreams printed on the back of paper used during Sanctuary or in the work of honoring people working with survivors of torture…paper I didn’t want to shred without using again.
Then comes the folding and gluing.
But the real fun happens when they get delivered.
More than 1,000 have been left in random places with the help of friends and acquaintances. My hope is that they’ll be a found object people will be intrigued by…a little stand-alone treasure. And who knows — maybe someone might be enticed to want to know more about Journey of Dreams.
So far they’ve been left, mailed or gifted in England and Spain as well as Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, and Vermont.
