Dust Jacket , a cover for 'The Voyage of the Beagle'
The second exhibition at the museum was inspired by my old copy of 'The Voyage of the Beagle' by Charles Darwin. It has no dust jacket so it seemed a good opportunity to make one !
I was fascinated by a passage in the book about his silk handkerchief so I recreated one from paper silk . I then turned this into a fortune teller , the creases being marked by writing the passage along each fold in ink.
Here are some images from the other artists in the show......
