Handstitched Clamshell Book Sculptures by Odelae (Erica Ekrem) “An ode to the Salish Sea…. from a butter clam shell (Saxidomus giganteus) discovered on the ocean floor off the coast of Orcas Island, a beautiful and sculptural clam shell hand-bound book. A little taste of mama ocean that will fit comfortably in the palm of an adult sized hand.”

15th Century BOOK OF HOURS - Heart-Shaped When Opened The little book of hours of Amiens Nicolas Blairie, carefully written on a thin Ruling rose, but modestly decorated with some original illuminations in ink (folio 29), has the curious shape of an almond when it is closed. When it opens, the two halves of the almond become the contours of a heart, as if the heart of the person holding the book has opened in prayer.
