north country shifu

shifu page from an artists' book
 shifu, north country style
has been a passion, 
a focus 
for me the last few years
shifu and slippery elm and indigo cover
weaving simply
sometimes including bark and sometimes indigo
 and making shifu into covers or
as in the first photo
the pages itself
well, it's an amazingly versatile
way to make 
a book, a cloth, a coat, a story
india has posted 
a little piece on my trip to australia.
come along over to see
and we'll do it. shifu.
