Book du jour

When giving a purse as a gift, it's customary to put a penny in it (or nowadays it could be a pound) - the gift of an empty purse curses the receiver to poverty ... wish I'd know that years ago!
I researched various customs and superstitions about pennies and made a wrapper (a book?) to hold it. It took half a dozen tries to get it to print in the right place on both sides of the paper, which gave me a chance to try out various fonts.
A penny for luck
A penny for your thoughts
There'll be pennies from heaven
In for a penny, in for a pound
A penny saved is a penny earned
Put a penny wrapped in paper, keep it to avoid your debtor.
