Underground Railroad

Almost immediately after reading Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead I began this accordion journal.  I used the brown waxed paper for the substrate.  The paper was covered with shellac and a patina was added giving it a verdigris texture.  The line that I stitched using paper yarn represents the railroad to freedom.
