Finally finished my patchwork of so-called men’s stuff.
It is mostly made from knackered old books which were beyond reading, but I used some magazines, postcards and junk mail, too. The squares are not copied, I have used the actual book and papers, making this piece a one-off.
During the next few weeks I shall post about its making, by focusing on a patch each day, then tagging the posts below.
My work is individually numbered, this piece is 799.
It can be found in my shop.
