Book of Poems

On the edge..
wedged between
hope and fear
with a clear

will you

and rise

Perfect Moment

A seed
the perfect
to emerge..


knowing nothing

not even
that it’s waiting.

More Handmade Books

I’ve finished some more Handmade Notebooks using Coptic Stitch style binding. Coptic binding was used by early Christians (the Copts) in Egypt, and used from as early as the 2nd century AD to the 11th century. The binding enables books to be opened 360Β°, and doesn’t require any glue.

Japanese Stab, Handmade Books coming soon. I love learning new skills πŸ™‚.

Available from my Online Shop. Unique and Eco Friendly. Many thanks to all who visit. Much Love…Mairi πŸ’™
