Barbers (work in progress)

Since last year, Chris, my barber, has been collecting the wrappers of his razor blades for me. He changes the blade for every haircut. I now have thousands of these wrappers, and have started coptic-stitching them into a book. This is a particularly painstaking job as the papers are tiny, torn, ordinary. I am hoping my stitching will mirror the care and precision of Chris' work.

Materials
Razor blade wrappers, glue and linen thread.
