Nest Egg - Concertina Sketchbook

Today I completed a new concertina sketchbook/altered book. It is part of my Nest-Nest Egg-Empty Nest series. Artist Statement link.  I created a linocut print that is printed on a sketchbook and the book is hung rather than read.  Each nest is hand painted and coloured.  This piece is to symbolize the wallets that men used to carry with lots of photos in them and the plastic photo holder folded out. With the advent of technology we now see people's images on their phone or computer, a very different experience.
