I have been asked several times to make a memorial book.
By this I mean a book that will be used to celebrate a persons life, to record ‘memories’, to include photos or art work, they are shared communal ongoing art work like a group of women coming together to make a quilt.

These books honour the life of the dead person but their purpose is in binding the memories and experiences of the living.

A bound book is a transportable exhibition.

It’s shared, it’s held, it’s pondered over and we pass them along. A well bound and constructed book will last hundreds of years.

I think I want to concentrate in the future in making books for the living.
