LOVE those LEDGERS!

Once again Seth Apter has come up with a great idea. He took a photograph of some papers and artwork in his studio and voila...  art!
He has given us the opportunity to participate in a collaborative exercise where we can photograph 'stacks' of anything in our studios.. papers, journals, books etc.

Considering my studio is one big stack I was hard pressed to decide what to photograph. Ultimately my antique ledgers won. Not only are they gorgeous on the outside, but the inside holds history.. the beautiful handwriting... the things that they wrote and just the feel of the paper.... love it!

So here they are... my stack :o)  (Now don't ask me to photograph 'stash'.. I'd be there all day!)


Happy stacking!
Best... Canace

Love your old journals! I love old books and covers and created a stack of a few of mine. Your photos inspired me to pull out some of my favorites and share my own stacks. :)

Oh, that must be the most elegant stack ever. Truly beautiful combination. My studio is a combo of stacks and heaps. I only photographed the ones that weren't too embarrassing.

Trudi Sissons said...

Very very tasteful and rich! I wasn't expecting to see anything so formal and elegant. Thanks for the treat! I could stage something like this for about 3 hours and then *poof* something would be on top of it....the stack gremlin! He's everywhere I am. :0)
