I was asked by our neighbour, Angela, to be involved in a local project to build Book Swap boxes.
This is a very popular idea in most of the states across the USA and she thought it would be ideal for our community.
Boxes are set up around the community for locals to leave books they have finished reading and collect a new read from the selection available.
I created this design for our project, combining practicality and looks. It will be placed on posts on our road for us all to use. there will be 4 boxes in total throughout the village.
The Wairau Valley Book Swap Project will be launched on 21st March.
