Song for a Lost Love
There are actually 3 of these floating around the world in various places! One has a home in Canada, the other two at opposite ends of the UK. Not a new piece of work, but in the name of completeness, I thought I'd post it here for those of you that are recent discoverers of me and my paper world! :o)
I had hoped to present this as another of my interactive flipbooks, but unfortunately it's so long and narrow that as a double page spread, it just isn't big enough to read any of the text, so here it is as a series of still images.
A book made from regular office type tags, bound together using brass hinges to turn each page, and chipboard covers. I cut craft paper down into A4 sheets and printed the text from the computer, then covered each tag with it and stamped, distressed and decorated each page. Words from "Love Song for a Vampire" by Annie Lennox.
Click on the slide show or on any image to enlarge it.
Page 1 - "Come into these arms again and lay your body down. The rythm of this trembling heart is beating like a drum".
Page 2 - "It beats for you, it bleeds for you, it knows not how it sounds. For it is the drum of drums, it is the song of songs".
Page 3 - "Once I had the rarest rose that ever deigned to bloom. Cruel winter chilled the bud, and stole my flower too soon".
Page 4 - "Oh loneliness - oh hopelessness, to search the ends of time. For there is in all the world, no greater love than mine".
Page 5 - "Let me be the only one to keep you from the cold, now the floor of heaven's lain with stars of brightest gold".
Page 6 - "They shine for you, they shine for you, they burn for all to see. Come into these arms again and set this spirit free".
