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 44, Shakespearean love quotes

Current bid for this book stands at £25
This is a copy of a small book I made a few years ago. It is a luxurious concertina book with a love quote from Shakespeare on each page and heart-shaped cut-outs. It closes with a magnet and measures14 x 10cm. The front cover is decorated with decoupage, small pieces of decorative paper glued in place and varnished.

This is the front cover which wraps round the book and fastens at the back with a magnet.

This shows the detail of some of the inside pages.
