Cloth hanging with ornaments, patches, lace, and catalog cards.
Remembering the zillion times those informative catalog cards helped me out in teaching and research at the University of Iowa, I couldn't resist your announced project to give some of those discards a prolonged, even novel form of life which technology, in its merciless advances, would otherwise have ended. The batch you so generously sent happened to include a number focused on the heading "gold." In my own retirement, I'm used to putting all sorts of collages together, using fabrics and junk scrounged from secondhand shops.
