I sent Lisa one of my soft-cover books made from painted layers of kraft paper and Tyvek. The cover is embellished with a crow cut from a star chart out of an old book and a scrap of marbled paper left from a larger project. The crow has a little key charm dangling from his beak. He's clearly up to no good.
The front cover wraps around the the text block so it won't get ruffled if you throw it in your bag. The pages are heavily stained with strong tea so that each one provides a slightly unique surface for writing or art. It's all stitched together with a criss-cross long stitch which provides a little interest on the spine. The closure is make from an African trade bead and waxed Irish linen thread. --Cindy of UsefulBooks
