A handmade book

This is a book that I’ve carried with me ever since I left Toronto after university.  My best friend Akemi, who is a papermaker, book binder and letterpress artist, made this book for me and there are two things that make it special:  the cover is made from a sheet of paper that I actually made myself at Akemi’s studio at OCA and she gave me this book for my 24th birthday and as a ‘bon voyage’ present before I left for France.  I’ve had this book for 20 years now, and it always reminds me of home.
