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.

This is another coptic bound book with sewing charms attached to the front cover as part of the spine binding. The covers are bound with thick handmade paper interwoven with threads. It measures 10.5 x 27cm and has 96 pages of cream paper.
