Pocketful of Pigeons by cryslara Pocketful of Pigeons by cryslara
Edit: Aww, wow, thanks for the daily deviation love, guys. :heart: There'll be more books to come in the future, I'm a little bit in love with the whole thing.

Please go here and tell Zoe how amazing her writing is - it would make her day and her fluttering poetry deserves all the praise it gets.

~~
Long time no see again! This was one of my uni projects this semester.

I make books and occasionally I make books that have things in them. This is a pigeon-book about pigeons and books - that fluttering moment of a flock and the confusion and scatter of feathers, pages, birds and books.

My friend Zoe wrote a beautiful poem that makes up the story - her original longer version can be found here and itís wonderful: [link]

This is a mix of paper cut outs, ink drawings, paper made from feathers and old essays, photocopy transfers of ink drawings and all fuelled by an obsession with birds that I donít think is disappearing anytime soon.

Something very different. It takes very unusual talents to make something like this, and I'm overjoyed to see it on dA. Congrats on the DD and keep up your incredible work with textures. I'm smitten by how dimensional the book is, irrespective of the medium used on a given page.

Superb detailing and such a cool idea. Never woulda thought to connect books and birds together- but you're right, the fluttering of book pages is quite bird-like. Grats on the DD, well done!
