library card art packs

I spent some time today making library card art packs – sets of three original drawings in pencil, ink and wash on old library cards (the kind that used to sit in a pocket attached to the back inside cover, and would be stamped by the librarian at sign-out). I’ve sold a lot of individual library card art pieces at craft fairs, but for online vending I think they move better as a set, so that a buyer can frame a favourite, use one as a gift and another as a bookmark.

I love to repurpose obsolete things as artworks. I’ve saved a lot of these cards over the years, so more will be forthcoming.
