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 49, Love poems box

Current bid for this book stands at £18
This book is 10 love poems encased in a maroon and gold box. The box measures 12 x 12cm. The poems are ones I have written over the past few years. The pages are folded into squares to reveal one poem at a time. The first page has a heart design in the same paper as the box with a ribbon to gently open the folded pages.
