This poetry book about love was created using a combination of traditional handcrafts and modern design. Each year has 52 weeks and 365 days, so the book’s creator used embossing rather than color printing to produce 52 ink-free poems on white paper, with a print run of just 365 hand-produced copies. The book also includes nine tipped-in plates depicting the biblical Genesis, printed on pages bearing no poems to further express the holiness and eternality of love.
