President Michael D. Higgins visited the F2 Centre in Fatima, Dublin 8 to launch ‘A Local Imagine Nation – An Arts Plan for Rialto’ on 8th of December 2011. During his visit, he was presented with one of the series of books I made for the F2 centre – I was really delighted!
This book is an altered accordion book made with 300 gsm textured paper. The butterfly embossed on the cover is Fatima’s symbol for regeneration. The book measures 30 x 26 and folds out in an usual manner. It also has a pocket on the front page to hold any bits of paper or other memorabilia that you want to keep with the book.
It was suggested that, as President Higgins is a poet, he could use this blank book to write his poetry in. I hope he gets good use out of it!
