If you can't see the photo, please try this link:
I went on holiday to Italy last year and at about the same time found a second hand out of date anthology of articles from the italian press. It seemed like too good an opportunity to miss to put together an altered book / holiday journal. This is the best page from the book and illustrates the Museum of Antiquities against the background of an article about archeological discoveries in Italy. What do you think?

Amazing! I like the colours you worked with - and especially that comb! Any idea what/who it is??

and I don't know much about the comb, just that it was found in what is now the Turin area of Italy a long time ago. Here's the page of the book I've just finished. Similar colour scheme:

Thanks for all your comments!

I'm quite pleased with how its turning out but its getting harder and harder to find text in the book that relates at all to my content. If I didn't speak Italian, of course i wouldn't see that as a problem!

The latest page in the book:

It features a photo of Turin and a collection of bus tickets, restaurant recepits etc from our time there. It's set against a background of a text about holidays in the city.
