Summer Book Swap: SurfBunny


My swap book was created from all handmade paper.  The cover is a mulberry with skeletal leaf inclusions from Thailand, the pages are lemongrass fibers from our garden.  The lemongrass was beat in our Critter hollander for about 4 hours and then pulled western style.  The form of the book is a Japanese Daifuku cho (Great Fortune notebook) which was used by merchants as an account book.  The tassels were usually much longer and worn woven into the merchants belt thereby aiding theft security.              -- Duane of Surfbunny
