"In My Garden" - a movable book

This movable book is my original work.  Every other page tells the story of my little garden in Vermont.  The other pages illustrate that with a 3D kirigami papercutting, all hand-cut.  The printed illustrations are reproductions of original flat kirigami papercutting (mandalas and bifolds.)  The book is bound loosely (so the thick, heavy pop-ups can move) with a straight stitch through the edge of each folded page.
Below are photographs of the complete book. Text and pictures are printed in a light gray which reads well in person but doesn't photograph well.  This will be entered in the BookArts show at Artistree in Woodstock, VT.  Selling price will be $600.
