Lane's Telescopic View: The Ceremony of Her Majesty Opening the Great Exhibition (partially open) by Hopkins Rare Books, Manuscripts, & Archives, via Flickr

Inspired by the Immortelles, I made small books with pressed flowers for an exhibition in Aberteifi/Cardigan. Pressed flowers and gold stitch on tea stained paper. The cover is made from the cover of an old broken book, which has lovely gold detail around the edge.
