This quote was given to me by a customer to create a series of handmade cards. I had five beautiful envelopes somebody gave them to me as a gift. So I decided to use the poem and the envelopes. This small book is made with five envelopes sewn together in a coptic manner. The artwork is fragmented and numbered to go inside the five envelopes. This envelopes have beautiful Florentine paper designs inside. The artwork is done in five separate parts which together give shape to the message.
