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 27, a box of gift tags

Current bid for this book stands at £20
At last! Here is number 27, after a long summer break! And it's really pushing the boundaries of what a book is, but I'm working on the fact it is handmade from paper and card.
It is a box of 50 gift tags and it has been a great joy to make and to get back into this project after some weeks away.
The size of the box is 16 x 7 x 4cm and the gift tags range in size from 6.5 x 3cm to 13 x 6cm. Each one is hand-decorated.
Here is the evidence -
Here is a glimpse of all the gift tags.

This is the closed box - 

and the open box!
