Me again, here is the last Book I have made for the series

I I have always loved Ammonite fossils. I have two of them, so i made a mold, cast a bunch in plaster and carved them down to different sizes. I layed them out and filled the holes with dirt and did another mold. I cast it in a two part Urethane plastic and painted to look like the surface of fossil rock. The curvy brass stuff is cast, the hinges are piano hinges hidden around the bulbous bits :-) I can't show any inside pages yet... shhhhhh, it's secret! ;-P

I'm enchanged by that last one. They're all beautiful, though. How did you get interested in making these kinds of books.

Very nice - I used to sell ammonite fossils, and I just love how they look like little ram horns.
