Leonard Shapiro is a retired attorney who keeps himself out of trouble by publishing a blog. Roughly once a year, his wife does an editing pass and assembles the posts chronologically into a little gift book for relatives and friends. A good friend of theirs is a gifted photographer of flowers and plants, so my biggest challenge is picking which of her glorious photos to use as the cover. This is a joyous project to work on whenever it comes in, and by taking a minimalist approach, we keep the overall cost within reason.
