Fragments, Vestiges and Remains-Pulp Redux

I have finally finished the covers for the Pulp Redux book collaboration, at least as much as I will at this time.

I have some brass fittings to add but will keep them until the book returns to me after its sojourn around the world.
The weight of the fittings will add too much to the overall postal costs and the book will likely need rebinding on its return so they will be set aside for a later date.

I have added a fragment of text...




I did say it was a fragment!


I have filled the niche with the title of course and the remains of a burnt photograph and a small brass key.



I have also framed the niche with the vestiges of an old belt buckle that has undergone a somewhat radical transformation from its previous incarnation.






I added a few small details...



the remnants of some chains and some favourite beads...




and lo...




'Fragments, Vestiges and Remains'



A story about the little pieces is born!



I can't wait to see how everyone will interpret the theme and what they will do with it.

Imagine the stories this book could contain...
