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 22, The earth is breathing out

Current bid for this book stands at £25
This book is of a poem I wrote in April 2013.The words are hand printed onto the pages and each page is decorated with a die cut of a spring border in different papers.
The size is 15 x 10.5cm with 16 pages and is landscape rather than portrait orientation.

 This is the front cover, with the beautiful card like handmade paper with silk strands in it.

 Here is a view of some of the pages, all feature this lovely spring die cut.
