Book Remakes

I have been working my fingers to the bone making re-made books and journals. I am so excited with what has come out of all the work.
I took a thrifted hardback book and cut off the spine and the internal pages with a sharp blade. It was very easy if you keep the book closed and the blade right up against the cover.
I do not have any in progress photos but I do have what it looks like on the inside. I used scraps and other papers that I have laying around and also included a few left over pages from when I made a Remains of the day journal with the Mary Jane Moss class. I found how to do this style of bookbinding via YouTube. I didn’t just watch one video so I really can’t recommend any certain one. This binding lays flat no matter where you open the book.
This is the first page of the journal. I love the end papers.
So random scrapbook paper that I had in my stash.
A few more random scraps, made in to pages .
I have 2 more ready to bind and 4 more sets of covers needing pages. I really am enjoying the process and know that I will have some extras on sale in my shop soon. I will be at a local show on July 4th and will have them available. If you would like more information please let me know. I would love for you to stop by and see me.
