My biggest and best find was a box of letters written in the 1930s. I have yet to read them but they will become ephemera in my collages I am sure. They look so wonderful. I am waiting for just the right time to sit down to glimpse into a stranger's life many decades after the letters were written. It is kind of like receiving a letter 80 years in the past.
As does most of my work, African Marriage came together unplanned. I did the background and then started looking through my new books from the sale and voila! This couple jumped off the page!
