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 47, Magpie book

Current bid for this book stands at £30
This Magpie books features some of my favourite quotes, from a variety of sources including Thich Nhat Hanh, Emily Bronte, Shakespeare and Rumi.
It has a jewel-like front cover in blue, turquoise and gold and the pages are made from plastic sewn together to encase each quote. It measures 14 x 15cm, has 22 pages and is finished with a concertina spine.

This is the front cover.

And here are the details of some of the pages.
