A Board Book, an Attestation to the Possibilities of Story-Telling
Recently, I was asked to bind a one-off board book intended to hold the story of a young child’s adoption into her family. While excited at the prospect of producing a board book, I was most touched by its contents; it seemed to me such a lovely way to open a conversation that directly touches on the identity construction of this young person. This particular story is open ended, and allows for the asking of questions, and for input on how this story continues into the future. What is for certain, is the unconditional love from where the story came – perhaps the most important take-away from this book object.
