Palm Leaf Structure Book

Phred was into his meditation one evening last week and although mindfulness was not on his mind, this book came to him. He tells me "Spirit Guide" is a palm leaf structure book like the Buddhist texts in Tibet and Nepal. Each leaf (page) is a separate sheet of handmade paper. The paper includes recycled mail bits, rose petals and Darjeeling tea leaves.

The cover is hand lettered by Frida with the Tibetan script for the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra. Each leaf contains one of the names of the Dalai Lama and the Om mantra. Turning the leaf is expressive of releasing the mantra into the air and contributing to the betterment of the planet.

The book is bound with auspicious red silk cord adorned with pearls.
It is really quite beautiful in person. Phred did an edition binding of 4 to share with some friends.
