A hand-sewn leather-bound book

with hidden surprises!

back back to shop

This book addresses the premise that life’s challenges, however horrible, are learning, refining experiences and attitude is significant in achieving positive outcomes.    I have explored the theme over two years with book-art objects, Adversity Timeline and Rock Book leading to a codex-style book with ‘hidden disruptions’ of the form.  As an art-object, the book engages on many levels, with textures, rustling pages, complex imagery and construction.

It has leather covers, hand-tooled, pierced and stitched, with an exposed spine.  The book is sewn on cords so it opens flat.

( a donation from each sale will be made to the two charities represented by hidden stories in the book, Artists For Trauma and A Little Thunder).

Edition of 10.
