Jamaican heritage

The colours red, green, yellow against black; a thread running through the story; the letter M like a regular pattern, pulsing through the pages, softly embedded in layers. Throughout, envelopes, frames, secret places to hold papers, memorabilia, and a letter to the future. Cover is black suede. The leaves rattle, pleasingly, and you could imagine their chimes are a-calling you.


a personal book made for extended writing; inspired by the idea that your family culture passes through a mother's language, on through the years. Hence layers, wraps, unfoldings. Soft black leather, anonymous on the outside, opens to reveal warm felt colours, rich red, yellow, green. Leaves can be tied inside, or left to dangle on the outside. (Showy me prefers dangly.)
