and I was the lucky recipient!

The notion of books still thrills me – the worlds that lie within, the potential for discovery, and the joy of holding a book in my hands.

I work slowly, often meditatively. It takes time to prepare, cut and fold paper for a book; to measure, mark and draw lines for writing; to stitch multiple pages. I enjoy the peacefulness of sitting quietly as I do these tasks. My work is quiet.”

Thank you Fiona!
