BEST Charity for Literacy

I am a member of BEST (Bookbinding Etsy Street Team) and we are having a nine-week fundraiser for the charity H.E.L.P. International. H.E.L.P. a registered charity dedicated to providing health care and education for children throughout the world who are orphaned, destitute or disabled.

BEST members are selling selected handcrafted books on their Etsy sites and 100% of the profits (minus Paypal and Etsy fees) will be sent directly to H.E.L.P. Here is the book I'm donating. It's a small handbound blank journal (4 1/2" x 6") with writing paper that is also good for sketching and light wash watercolour. It's a hardcover book, decorated with handmade Korean and Thai banana bark papers. You can find out more about this book at my Etsy shop.
To see other BEST member's donated books, check out the BEST blog. It's an opportunity to support a great cause, and get yourself a fabulous little handmade book :)

This is so pretty ...I love the colours you've chosen to work with!

Thanks! I really love those handmade papers--the banana bark paper has bits of bark and fiber in it, which makes the book cover very textured.
