The Hand Me Down Books
Before publication, we are releasing 100 limited editions of Hand Me Down World to 100 readers, assigning them the task of handing down the book to someone else, once they have finished reading. Hand Me Down World follows the changing fortunes of an African woman, Ines, an illegal migrant, who must find her way to Berlin. Her fate and indeed her story are in the hands of others. Like Ines, we want these books to be carried by the people who read them and journey, as they are passed on from reader to reader.
