50 books in a year of being 50

In this year of being 50 I have decided to follow one of my creative passions
and make 50 handmade books over the year.

Early next year I will find a way to exhibit the books and auction them.

The money raised will go to Plum Village in France,
a monastic retreat centre inaugurated by Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Book number 8, Cream and Hessian

Current bid for this book stands at £20.
This is the largest book (so far!). It measures 20 x 19.5cm and closes with elastic. It has 82 pages of heavy cream cartridge paper.

The spine reveals the stitching which is brown linen long stitches with small white beads at top and bottom and on the middle stitches. There is also a metal 'hand made' tag in the shape of a hand on the spine.
