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 46, Lilac coptic jewels

Current bid for this book stands at £15
Yet another coptic bound book, this time with jewelled beads decorating the front cover. It has a lilac cover and pages. The book measures 8 x 8cm and has 128 pages. It closes with thread wrapped around a bead on edge of the spine.

Here is the cover showing the beautiful jewel-like beads on the front and the fastening.

And here are the inside pages.
