Signs of the Times XV and XVI

Signs of the Times XV, 6 x 6"

Signs of the Times XVI, 6 x 6"

Here are the two newest.

Signs of the times XV contains text cut from my favorite vintage book of city maps. The information is about Akron, Ohio, former rubber (as in tire) capitol of the United States. The map is from a vintage textbook of New Towns.

I believe the text in XVI is from the same textbook. I love those plastic letters. I did not purchase them for this purpose, but there they are. Perhaps I will have to find another set if I choose to actually sew them onto my pieces. I really need an excuse to surf Ebay.

These pieces are now for sale on Etsy.

The scale of these amaze me. How can you pack so much in such small pieces?

Wonderful! and Amazing!
