Book Swap #5 - OliveArt

Kristi, of OliveArt.Etsy.com, made this unique case-wrapped-journal for our book swap. Lots of attention paid to the details on this one. It is covered with her own paste papers, and the hard case wraps around and closes with two wooden sticks through paper loops on the front.


Then slide the sticks out, and there is a Coptic bound journal inside...

And the journal can be completely removed by sliding the back cover out of its slot...


And that's not all...she has wrapped the spine of each signature with two papers, rectangles and triangles, slotting them together inside.


Visit OliveArt.Etsy.com to see more of Kristi's work, including other books made like this one as well as a variety of other styles.

This is gorgeous! Every time I see more awesome work from BEST members, I wish we lived close enough to do in-person workshops together!

The detail in this book is great; it looks as if she enjoyed every step in making it.
