found words ~ 16s

The 16s series were picked from a tattered copy of the Concise English Dictionary.
Found at a garage sale in Howrah, this CED was a tired paperback missing half of its cover and a few pages to boot. But the engaging word selection and font on age-discoloured pages prompted the first Found Words collection.

Each selected word column is protected by an archival sleeve and completed with cotton & dwarvish-dust twine (optional upgrade to leather cord or black ribbon).
A header word is tucked just inside the sleeve, uniquely naming each bookmark.
