The Book Exchange Climax!

The book exchange project comes to a close. We had decided at the start that we would aim for ten exchanges with the proviso that we may end sooner or keep it going for longer, and I think that we both felt that we had enjoyed this but it was probably time for something new.

For the last exchange, Nick opted for a handmade ‘lenticular’ effect cover which looked different from each angle:

LESTARET-QB78 LESTARET-QB79 LESTARET-QB80LESTARET-QB91 LESTARET-QB81

On pulling the tab, the backdrop begins to change…

LESTARET-QB82

And appear in full on the next…

LESTARET-QB83

Only to change again…

LESTARET-QB84 LESTARET-QB85 LESTARET-QB86 LESTARET-QB87 LESTARET-QB88 LESTARET-QB89 LESTARET-QB90

Mine was a little different.
LESTARET-QB93 LESTARET-QB94 LESTARET-QB95 LESTARET-QB96 LESTARET-QB97 LESTARET-QB98

This is a very personal book – all the years featured on the calendar have a significance to me that can be reflected in the sentence Nick chose:

LESTARET-QB99

I would like to thank Nick for his endless creativity and enthusiasm for all things booky and say to him that I have thoroughly enjoyed all these book exchanges. Also, thank you to all those who have ‘liked’ and commented our work – it is always rewarding to receive the praise of others and has been a big encouragement knowing that many of you have been eagerly waiting for the next installment!

Do not worry though, Nick and I are already thinking about our next venture and you will be the first to learn about it here! Meanwhile here is a full overview of all our books, mine on the left, Nicks on the right. You can also revisit all these posts here.
