Book Swap #11: MinusPlusMinus


From Katya at MinusPlusMinus comes this 6" x 4" sketchbook. The book is sewn on raised double cords with sewn endbands. The wooden covers are covered in burlap which has been embellished with embroidered decoration. The text block is handmade paper which she made from a variety of recycled materials, such as flax fiber, beaten jeans, newspaper, etc. A leather clasp keeps it shut and stable.

More of Katya's creations can be found here in her shop: www.minusplusminus.etsy.com.
