From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other. But when books are opened you discover that you have wings.
(Helen Hayes)

A little girl is reading a book, paper cranes are flying out of the pages. Flying to the sky they are getting real cranes. Birds made out of paper and phantasy are getting real. They will carry the girl through the sky, towards the land of phantasy, far, far away.

I conceived, designed and then carved the motif into a plate. On the etching press.
I've printed it on old, long loved book pages and hand colored it with acrylic- and watercolors to a unique item. Also the passe-partout I made of book pages.
