This one all started with picking a number out of a bag. We had three days from that point to make that number of books. Moreover, the content of the books also had to relate to that number too!
I originally got 100 but my lovely friend swapped with me (I think she was worried that after the owls project I might have abit of breakdown) and I ended up with the number five.
I decided to base my books on the 'little five'.
In SA when on safari they tell you to look out for the 'Big Five'. Many travellers regard a visit to South Africa as incomplete without having spotted, and perhaps photographed, the Big Five. It consists of the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino.
The little five is a simply a list of smaller animals whose names contain those of the big five. They are the elephant shrew, ant lion, rhinoceros beetle, buffalo weaver and leopard tortoise.
I made five papercut books. Each is like a mini safari with the animal being revealed as you go through it.
N.B. Sorry for the qulaity of the photos. Papercut is very hard to photograph!
