Birgit Daa Birkkjaer: BLUE BOOK
This book was inspired
by 'The Old Dyers Yard' in Ebeltoft, where natural duestuff as indigo was once used for
the farmers handwoven clothes. Preparing an exhibition in the Dyers Yard, I dyed some yarn
with natural indigo, and some af these beautiful blue colors, I used for handwoven covers
for the little Blue Book. The first and last page have some text, but the other pages are
blank, so you are wellcome to fill them out and make your own 'Blue Book'. In Denmark 'The
Blue Book' is a book with all important persons, so may be you want to make it your
personal book - or a book with your children, grand children or other important persons in
your life - or just a 'Blue Book'.
