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 36, In out long

Current bid for this book stands at £18
This book is another small printed version of number 34, (in, out, deep, slow, calm, ease, smile, release, present moment, wonderful moment)
but this time it is vertical rather than horizontal.
Here is the closed book. The cover is cream and gold and a bit darker than the photo indicates. It fastens with a bead and loop and the loop closure is also the means of hanging it. It measures 7 x 2cm. This book also starts with the words 'breathe & go slow'.

 Here is the open book.
