Today I’m showing some pieces of “boro” paper from my personal collection. These pieces are several layers thick and they are glued together from old ledger books, creating unintended, tone-on-tone collages. Each very beautiful. They date from the 19th through the early 20th century and each is about 30″ or 76 cm square. The are said to have been used in pawn shops to wrap goods.
