…continued from last photo
Hand made book from paint chip samples (had a bunch left over from other projects), recycled industrial felt, photo copies of occupational therapy hand exercises. I used e6000 glue to bond the chips to the felt…it is quite flexible and has held up well. The book is 2.5 inches square…a tiny thing easily carried.
I believe everyday ordinary things can be made beautiful. I needed something to make these painful, dull exercises a little bit brighter and fun. I had found carrying the photocopies of the exercises around in purse only got them damaged, and undone. So I made this little board book. Need I say how much my therapist loved it too? 😉
I made this book around 5 years ago after hand surgery and subsequent months of physical therapy . I wanted to carry my exercises around with me and came up with this idea.
