However, we were allowed to photocopy and produce copies of the same book if our number was big, whereas the smaller numbers were expected to be more concentrated.
Considering the range of numbers given, 40 was neither too small for totally handmade books or too big for photocopied books. So in the end I created 40 hand-bound photocopied books with pen and watercolour illustrations inside, each one unique with a famous thief inside the 'pot' book; as I worked around the theme of "Alibaba and the Fourty Thieves" who hid inside pots as a disguise. As you can imagine I didn't sleep much during this 3 day project lol.
