"If you can make a book, you can do anything."

A wise woman told me that recently. It might not make as much sense out of context, but it certainly feels true after a day of making this book. It's the 5th piano-hinge book I've made in the past 2 weeks, and I just can't stop! This one is 2.72 x 2 inches.

The poem I used is one I wrote a couple of years ago, and recently revised...I feel like it has a home now. And I hope this inspires you to look up piano hinge just need paper, scissors, and toothpicks or skewers. You could make it in your kitchen!

Oh, and if you're wondering what a poemoir is...I wanted the title page to look official, and this looked better than "a memoir-ish poem, without a narrative." That just doesn't look good in print!
