Book Swap #12: PrairiePeasant


I've made a travel/map journal for Rhonda with all recycled materials except for the thread. The book board is recycled from a discarded book. The map on the cover is a vintage National Geographic map of Canada, and I've centered Rhonda`s home province of Nova Scotia on the front. Inside the covers, I've used pages from a vintage Canadian School Atlas that show economic resources and airline flight paths across Canada, highlighting the maritime provinces in this journal. The paper for the pages is obsolete computer paper with tractor feed perforations on the sides. I make quite a few of these journals and sell them in my shop, and frequently have requests for custom orders with specific maps. --PrairiePeasant

Thanks so much Laura, it's a terrific Nova Scotia book, great use of the maps and I love the printer paper pages :)
(And Laura used recycled packaging materials for shipping too!)
