This tiny accordion Courage Inspiration Book was a custom order from an artist friend. It is going to be a gift to an amazing woman who is going through chemotherapy. My friend supplied the quote and I made this tiny accordion book for her.

The cover of the book is a scanned image of one of my paste papers. We decided that courage was red/maroon. I picked this paste paper design for the cover. The circular impressions were actually made by pressing a cork into the wet colored paste.

Accordion Courage Inspiration Book open. It says, “Courage is not the absence of fear or despair, but the Strength to Conquer them.”

The little book is closed with a toothpick inserted into a piano hinge. I made the twisted cord to match the colors of the cover of the book. The text inside was done in Adobe Illustrator and printed on my archival printer.

Hugs and courage to all, Candy
