During my career as a costumer, I spent a lot of time looking at vintage clothing sites, for research and for fun. The high-end establishments like Vintage Textile have galleries showing their past treasures, and I enjoy them very much. I’ve decided to try the same thing on the Bo Press website with a page of my past work, and call it Greatest Hits.
Some of these I’ve totally forgotten, like the one above. The top holds three maps (terrestrial, lunar, and celestial) and the whole thing lifts up to reveal three glass-encased globes to match. I especially like the two tiny globes on the bookends.
A globe in a pyramidal box, covered on paper and stingray leather.
The costumes for the web event orchestrated by Rebecca Bingham, Prue Batten, and me, which led to a beautiful little book by the same name.
And much more! As I dig up old images hidden deep within my computer, I’ll add them. I’ve never been interested in being an archivist of my own work, so I clean out my files pretty ferociously. I’m always thinking of how many good ideas I used to have. . .
