Book Swap #11: UsefulBooks
I almost forgot this entry for our swap, since I didn't have an email from the contributor: me! I made a coptic journal with covers of vinyl tile. I cut the tile to size with a band saw and used the adhesive backing to affix Kraft paper lining. The cover is embellished with little birds punched out of map paper. The pages are a mix of ivory Italian Velata and camel Hahnemuhle ingres. The closure is a double length of waxed Irish linen thread, finished at the end with a stone bead.
My journals and notebooks can be found in my shop here: www.usefulbooks.etsy.com.
