Book Swap #11: PaulinePaulette

This book from Paola of PaulinePaulette happens to be the book that I am thrilled to have received. I'll let her describe it:

The book is a blank book bound in full bookcloth with cork decoration. That piece was just waiting to be used. I love the texture, and I kept the lines simple to let the material "speak for itself." Like wood, cork is so alive and reminds me of trees and forests. The white light paper of the book block is sewn on ribbons with a decorative orange endband.



Paola's work is offered for sale in her shop: www.paulinepaulette.etsy.com.

This book is truly a work of art! I doubt I'll be able to bring myself to use it, useful though it is. Thanks, Paola!

It's great to see so many different designs for books in this swap! The cork looks beautiful!
