Today's book actually started with a small pile of cream paper scrap, cut-offs from some previous book. I looked at the pile and asked myself, "What can I make with that?" Well, OK, let's be honest. I actually asked, "What can I make with it that will be quick and easy?" I'm feeling particularly uninspired tonight. Also, what with all the big news tonight, watching the reports, watching the president's speech, discussing it with friends, it got to be midnight and I still had no book. But I will NOT go to bed without making a book. And so I truly did need something fast.
The cover paper for this doesn't really photograph to advantage. It is a beautiful slick, glossy dark green paper with a lovely fern pattern.The pile of scrap paper was simply stacked, then punched with holes, the cover paper wrapped around it and punched and the ribbon threaded through and tied. Easy-peasy (Oh God, did I really just write that?)
Anyway, enjoy this little hand-made book with ledger binding.
