A sentimental prayer/poem for belly dancers, Alphabet for a Belly Dancer captures the essence of belly dance through word play and a rhythmic pattern that mimics the dance itself.
Bound in a pull-out accordion structure with wrap-around cover in Japanese Masa Unwaxed and French handmade paper Mouchette Almond (pale green), finished with hand-dyed rayon ribbon, coins, and beads. The protective envelope is made with a shimmering dark turquoise 89lb cover stock.
Excerpt from text (E through H) reads:
Enchant, with the intricate movements of your
Feet, gliding, stepping to the beat of the drum.
Grace, with sweeps of your arms, hems of your skirts, your
Hands, beckoning, drawing them to your kingdom.
