The Unknown Exponent by hogret The Unknown Exponent by hogret
My daughter has just finished her end-of-year exams. She hates maths, as do I, so I tore out a page of her maths textbook (wicked, wicked glee!) to use as part of the background.

Collage: Paper, acrylic glazes, Japanese masking tape, marker pens, diamond glaze, rub-on letters, eyelets, acetate transparency.

Altered book, work in progress. A copy of Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography which has been assertively altered - each spread has been cut down to a different architectural shape, and each spread thus has views behind and beyond to other spreads. The theme is the layered world of childhood, using illustrations from early 20th C illustrators as focal points. The illustrations in this spread are by Marguerite Davis.

Really nice imagery, but, as a former math teacher, I must *slightly* disapprove, out-of-course, for damaging public? schoolbooks...tut, tut :)

and math is relatively easy in comparison...'tis creativity like yours that's hard

The book is wonderful. But this caught my eye. I'm in the same boat; I cannot make myself do math. It's a life-long deep blockage of some kind.

I wonder how selective old Ben was in telling his life story. He was a wild card.

I don't know what came first - that I was useless at math, and then started hating it, or the other way around. But it's a lost cause, now!

This is really incredibly composed. You keep mentioning this Japanese masking tape. Is that what you're using to bind the edging?

It's a must-have! You can use it to bind page edges, or just decorative. The text tapes are available here: [link]

Govt Health Warning - these tapes are addictive! I have the text ones, and the polkadot ones, and the gingham ones ...
She sells wide fabric tape, too, which is great for repairing fraying books.

Don't you just love supplies? I think half the fun is in the hunting and gathering!
