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.

From the first book ...

Tomorrow is the day! It's actually here and happening tomorrow!
I never really thought when I made this first book 

where things would lead to! 
I have been making books for many years and have loved experimenting with different ideas and trying new ways of making books throughout the year.
I started making a list of ideas for the 50 books and there are several still on the list that I haven't made yet, so it doesn't stop here!
Let's hope tomorrow brings lots of visitors and more bids!
All to a VERY good cause - Plum Village.
