This book is made with 8 brown paper bags, decorated with Brazilian Christmas papers, ribbons, glitter, vintage images of Santas and tags.
These little books are very emotional to me. They strongly remind me of my childhood in a very poor country. I used to decorate brown paper bags to make notebooks to my little brother and to myself. The first altered book I made using brown paper bags were never shown entirely. I just can’t do it. It would be as exposing this part of myself, the child I was and still am inside my heart. And the remembrance of my beloved brother who I rarely see nowadays.
