Visual Bon-Bon


Getting close to finishing an Idea which hatched during my residency at Blue Mountain Center, and that is a box of visual bon-bons.  In actuality they are geometric puzzles to which I added photographs, prints and drawings.  You can find these puzzles on the internet by searching for “flexagons”.

One fairly simple puzzle with an impossible flap grew into a little book named “Membranes”.

“Membranes” is finished off with some batik cotton and coptic binding.

Next project: finish the box of bon-bons of which this book is one piece — I think.
