The character of Kokopelli on these is a ubiquitous symbol here in the southwest US. He goes back more than a thousand years and has been found in rock art all over this region. This hump-backed flute player was a fertility symbol/god, a prankster and a good luck symbol. Today, you'll find him in jewelry, on T-shirts, caps, tote bags, magnets, mugs posters, greeting cards, table runners, rugs, blankets..... and on coasters.
I cut four colors of text paper in earth tones to fit the size of the coasters. As an experiment, I glued the spine edge of the pages with padding compound, as if I were making a perfect binding, in the hopes it would make punching the holes easier by keeping the pages together. And it did. The Japanese stab binding is sewn with doubled red thread in a herringbone pattern.
I think this would make a nice little guest book sitting on a hall table in a southwest style home.
