I am keeping a list of words that please me -- favorite words, for lack of a better designation. I am planning/starting a thematically-linked cluster of projects that have grown out of these words (more about that another day). The first one completed is a variation of a structure I learned from Shereen LaPlantz's book, The Art and Craft of Handmade Books (pp 40-43). The word is YONDER. It's fun to say, and I like the homey feel. Even more, I am attracted to the aspirational pull of phrases like "the wild blue yonder". It's easy to let oneself be seduced by the promise of great rewards just (be)yond(h)er(e). I made the paste paper; the plane and sun images are from public domain collections (NYPL and NASA respectively).
