|My contribution to Kim's Book - Pulp Redux|
|Full page spread - Pulp Redux (reversible - the page folds again to reveal the other half of the Scottish Flag, the St George Cross)|
If you've seen Jane Campion's The Piano - you'll know what I mean about the trials and tribulations of travelling along the beach or the coast and then up inland on foot or by cart! This was an exciting journey but treachorous and exhausting. For me, it means lots of local research and the digging up of some fabulous stories!!

|What precious little thing is in that envelope?|
|Ahhhh...an unborn baby: the promise of hope and a new start in life. Children were often born on board ship on the way over to our shores or shortly after landing.|
Well, that's it on the Pulp Redux front. I hope you enjoyed what you read here. It's going to be a fascinating journey and a beautiful one to boot, hopefully. I'm using my new walnut stains, acetate and specially bought fibres, fabrics and paper for my contribution. E.g. the baby, above, is printed in sepia on acetate and then mounted on a playing card with the most delightful, beautiful filigree pattern on the back (more on that later). You can even remove the baby from her pouch/envelope too, btw!
And now for something totally random.
