I've just started picking some of this year's pomegranates. Although they are beautiful inside, their waxy outside skin, complete with scratches and little scars is just gorgeous. I've tried to capture some of this quality in the cover of an artist book I'm making at the moment. (I hope you can see it in the photo -it's a bit subtle)
The little book "Transparent" is part of a great collaborative project run by Book Art Object, a great group all interested in the many types and forms of artist books. Involvement with this group through their blog has been incredibly rewarding and satisfying. Check out the link if you are interested in the nitty -gritty of making my cover.
