My Maharajah's Palace Projects-Books (MOMA)

This post 1st appeared on My Maharajah's Palace- Day 29

JUST FINISHED making the pages of my new series of books on ceramics from West Asia, art exhibits at MoMA and here are some samples:

I am really getting the hang of it although you won't be able to tell from the low res version of the pictures posted here .

This time, the images are sharp and the words clear even at such small scale. There will be 12 books in this series, each book displaying different objet d'art from the museum. The description of each piece is on the next page. Details like the name of the object, date, place of origin and material used are provided. Pic on left (high res) is of my favourite exhibit. I think there are a total of 71 artwork covered in my books.I just love doing this cos you learn so much at the same time.

In the meantime, after almost 6 hours of stitching, I have only covered 1 1/2 sides of the 1st line of the edges:

See how I have drawn lines over the canvas?? Took me 1/2 an hour but I am so glad I did cos it really helps spot mistakes quickly.

X-stitching is very similar to computer gaming. It's very addictive, requires all your concentration and hurts your hand bad!
