Here's another recycled children's book, good old Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. (Sounds like the recent political debates... but only 5 dwarfs left... ooh, did I just say that? My bad. Sorry. No more politics.).
Snow White was one of my great favorite Disney films when I was a girl. So I love the classic Disney illustrations in this book. As usual, I cut out the book block and slit the cover case down the spine. Then I trimmed the cover boards close and bound the edge with some decorative red-and-gold washi tape. I folded up the signatures then folded more washi tape over the fold edges for a decorative accent--some in red/gold check and others in green/gold checks.
The book is bound with a single-needle coptic stitch, or chain stitch binding, with goldenrod waxed cotton thread.
One thing I reallyh like about this book (if I say it who shouldn't) is that it is really very well made. It makes a neat package and would probably appeal to a young girl (or an old lady like me who was once a young girl who loved Snow White).
