Here's where it gets fantastic...
The cover was upcycled from the 1944 letterpress book 'Leave Her To Heaven' by Ben Ames Williams. I removed the 69 year old cover from the original book, and folded the original fabric cover over the cut edge. I covered the corners and inner cover with beautiful Italian paper before stitching with sturdy linen binding thread. The book is filled with 6 signatures of hand-cut 28lb sturdy unlined paper. I corner punched the pages too, to minimize corner scrunching.
Coptic binding allows the journal to lay flat for easy writing and drawing. I use Faber-Castill pens with mine!
Note: The fabric cover of this book is 69 years old. It's got some smudges that wouldn't budge. Be brave and really put this journal to use!
