Things I Know for Sure by Cody Calhoun, Springboro, OH, USA. This double flag book structure by Cody Calhoun is made of various handmade paste papers and computer generated text. 17 x 9 x 3 cm (closed), 17 x 9 x 45 cm (open). The basic flag book structure was originally learned from samples by Hedi Kyle and the technique was expanded and refined with Karen Hamner at a CBAS workshop in Cincinnati.

Notes on the Chemistry of Love by Kindra Crick. This book grew out of my fascination with the recent research on the hormone oxytocin, which is thought to play a major role in human love, bonding and empathy. The book presents the tension between knowing and feeling. Chemical structures with their noted properties contrast with contemplative questions about the human heart as the inescapable symbol for human affection.
