The title of the last book-of-the-week for 2014 is GATES.. It is simply six words that are gates... Hope, Dream, Faith, Craft, Laughter, and Love. The words are letterpress printed in the shape of a gate, with stacks of the words as the two side posts and four lines of the words as boards connecting the posts. The book was bound in the stiff-leaf method. Hand-marbled paper was used to cover the coverboards. Black, white, and grays are the color pallet.

Next week begins another year of books. The books will be based on the word map. Yippee!
