|The Little Tree|
|a little pop-up book...|
Week 51 book-of-the-week is titled
The Little Tree. It's a small pop-up book about
4 x 4½ inches with a flat back spine of hand marbled bookcloth and wrinkled paste paper cover.
|marbled bookcloth and pastepaper cover..|
Hand lettered and painted with acrylics.
The fun with pop-ups is when you open the first page...and then the second... and then the third! Actually pop-up books are ALL fun.
|Little Tree sheltered by her mother and aunties...|
|grew and grew and grew...|
|until one day Little Tree looked around and saw she was sheltering the older trees.|
|and she was very happy|
Sometimes time passes by so quickly that in what seems a blink of an eye the clock has turned full circle... a year has passed... two years, ten years, thirty years or more...and a person finds they have moved through the stages of life... The Little Tree is about that change in status during a lifetime.. that choreography of being.
