Pizza Book


I am on what I hope is the home stretch of my mixed media book. I have all the final photographs and am busily writing captions for many of them. I want to share ALL the photos on my blog, but I don't think that would go over so well with the publisher. Here is one, though, which may or may not make it into the book. It is my "Pizza Book" for pizza recipes. The cover is made from a fused fiber sheet, fused to a stiff interfacing. The tomatoes and basil leaves are cut from fabric I designed for Free Spirit Fabrics several years ago. I just love these tomato slices! They are fused to the background and then stitched by machine. I added a few beads to the tomato seeds. This is a one-signature book sewn in a few places to the cover at the spine. Now I have to compile all my pizza recipes. Anyone want to send me a recipe? If anyone wants a few tomato slices I'd be happy to send them.

  1. Ooooh, Jane I didn't know that you were coming out with a new book. I have your Collage with Color and Collage Journeys books and love them both. I am always looking through the Collage Journeys book--it is definitely one of my favorite art books, and I have alot, believe me!

  2. Your pizza book is so cool! Love those tomato slices, too :) I'd send you a recipe but I'm not much of a cook; that's an area where my muse doesn't seem to go :) I know a lot of pizza places, around here, however :) Your book sounds awesome!
