These books are hand-made, and contain flat objects: leaves, knotted threads and grass, feathers, flowers, wall peelings, chocolate wrappers, bus or train tickets, fevicol peelings off the finger, photos of wall cracks, paper stitched using hair, et al. All these objects are carefully collected through time, referring to the mundane habit of people who preserve things inside their books only to discover later, to relive the nostalgic memory attached with each object.
