The theme for October’s Collage Club was ‘Treasure’. It’s a very cool theme, that lends itself to many interpretations. Here is mine :

Books as treasure, knowledge as a gift. The main photo is from Shakespeare and Company, a bookstore in Paris. The girl receiving a gift is from a past issue of Flow.

To complete the collage, I added a piece of ephemera from a scrapbooking line. I like its vintage feel. There are so many books I still want to read. I truly feel that walking into a bookstore is walking into a treasure trove of possibilities.
