"Donde termina el arco iris en tu alma o en al horizonte?"
"Where does the rainbow end, in your soul or on the horizon?"
- Pablo Neruda
|I snapped a picture of the rainbow "book" before the wind blew it off the railing. Taken from the deck of my office at work. (I know, I suffer so.)|
I had been fiddling around with some ideas to respond to the mail art call from Dame Mailarta. The mail art call was, simply, Rainbow to "celebrate the changes that have been achieved, and are still being fought for, as they relate to human rights, marriage equality, and the LGBT community."
I had been wanting to do a bigger project and with Pamela's timely post that sent me to a blog on making books, I played around with this accordion book. The seams are a little rough in places, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Then I got busy sorting my papers into all the colours of the rainbow. Here are some closer views.

|Covers. Not sure about the "tower" of Queen Elizabeth.|
|I raided my stamp stash for rainbow-ish stamps.|
