Created from a single sheet, this French Fold book uses #272 from Rabindranath Tagore's book Stray Birds. Housed in a card stock wrapper.

Taken from a collection of epigrams by Tagore, who was a Nobel Laureate for Literature in 1913 and considered by many to India's greatest poet. The book was written in Bengalese, then translated into English by Tagore in 1916. Pointed and pithy, many of these poems celebrate the natural world in a clear and concise way that I appreciate and have deemed worthy of creating custom housings for.
