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.

The end of the auction is finally here!

Here we are at last.
It's a beautiful day. The sun is shining and the bunting is up.
And the first visitor is already here!

The house is filled with a plethora of colour as the books, cards, tea-light holders and other sundry items are all on display.

The books are in situ in our lounge. 

 The kitchen dresser is full of colour.

 In contrast, the tea-light holders my husband has made are a simple, natural wood.

Everything is ready for the off!
