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 51, How long does it take?

Current bid for this book stands at £10
This is an addition to the original 50 books as I made this one after someone asking how long it takes to make a book. The book measures 11 x 15.5cm with 92 pages of cartridge paper and a ribbon bookmark with a heart attached.
It is the simplest form of book-making with pages divided into signatures and sewn together then glued down the spine and attached to the covers.
