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 38, Framed book

Current bid for this book stands at £10
A small simple book made from handmade denim paper with a colourful frame on the front. Measures 6.5 x 9.5cm with 90 pages.
The paper was bought some years ago from a paper mill in Wookey Hole, Somerset. It is made from old denim and has a lovely soft texture and ragged edges.

Here is the closed book showing the simple frame on the front cover, decorated by wrapped variegated thread.

Here is the open book showing the pale blue pages.
