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 35, In out concertina

Current bid for this book stands at £10
This book has the same words as book number 34 (in, out, deep, slow, calm, ease, smile, release, present moment, wonderful moment) but in a small concertina book, measuring 4 x 4cm. 
Here is the book, closed with a ribbon and bead. The concertina page is made from rice paper and the cover is handmade paper with multi coloured threads in it.

Here is the open book with words printed (each letter printed individually).
