Come dance with me through the pages of this tiny (4in /10cm square) booklet of 12 pages of wondrous color and movement from torn papers in true trashpo elegance:

Mim created this little wonder in Paris in 2009, from what appears to be a pamphlet for art crafted jewelry.

As metal rings and circles whirl in the backgrounds, strips of torn colorful papers dance diagonally across the pages. 

It is a fine minimal layering across the forms and shapes of crafted jewels,

and fun creatures that dance above map fragments.

That blue and green strip weaves its way in and across the pages,

with every so often a map fragment...collage art even to please the Master!

Rings and things of circular joy!

Perfect poetic accents

here, there, and everywhere...

Each page opens to new wonders

some with explosive jewels...

some with clean minimal forms

and some for ..bunny? fun!

and "back" to the garden!

Sunflowers and sunshine! Many thanks, Mim. This will be treasured!

Just "joy"!
