Two Coins is a short story about words, rivers and coins and girls left behind. It is a story you’ll carry with you long after the words are gone.
Saturated with the blues of water and sky, sewn with black thread, this book is a miniature by European standards. The cloth used for the covers was found in a Turkish market; the endpapers are Nepalese Lokta. I wanted to make this book look like something you’d find in your travels, in a dusty corner of a market stall, or on a shelf in a glass-fronted cabinet.
Because of the nature of these books, no two are identical. Each book comes with two coins from around the world.
All copies have been sold.
Two Coins was originally published in Electric Velocipede, Issue 15/16.
