First spread in the board book

The first spread in the book "Secrets in her handbag' is a list of places that this lady would like to visit. Journeys which she longs to make but never came around to.
I think that most people have dreams and fantasies about the things that we want to do. Sadly, they keep being dreams because there are so many other things that we give priority to. Still, it is hopeful if we remember those dreams and keep them alive. Maybe, maybe just one day we can make it happen....

The images are transfers done on sticky transparant paper. The map was aged by folding, wrinkling and inking. The same treatment was given to the handwritten list. The text was stamped on painted paper.
