Winter Swap: The Orange Windmill

This journal was made from the hard covers of a discarded book from the series entitled A Series of Unfortunate Events. While the covers were in great condition, many of the pages had been abused, so this book was headed for the dump. I reclaimed the book covers for this journal.

There are 180 pages of brown recycled paper with 9 signatures. Bound with the coptic stitch, this journal lays completely flat when open, enabling the user to utilize all of the page. The pages were individually hand torn by me.

This journal measures approximately 7.5" x 5", making it a great size for on-the-go writing. -- Shirley of The Orange Windmill.
