the process of how a book becomes is
fraught with tiny decisions 
and then i placed
maybe arbitrarily
the one piece of silk that was 
just over 16" x 20" 
 and did a bit of math
and thought about page spread size 
and divided the cloth into eight 5" x 8" pages

which would be folded into
pages that were 4" x 5"
i then cut the attachment slots
 in this case the dummy was quite small
so i played with some silver oddments
to see how they are on the silk 
a nifty thread in natural and dyed with copper 
and a few other alchemies
the first cut
on this stuff i love so much 
was the hardest
more to come...
