Spine kept intact

The photos displayed here are of a sold journal. This is a sample listing, please contact me if you'd like to order something similar. Or browse my shop to see available books in stock that can be custom made for you. Any cover can be used to make an artist journal.

Prices vary based on size & age of book as well as types of paper selected and amount of illustrations and total page ccount. From $55 - $195. Please let me know your budget when requesting a custom order.

To create an art journal, I first carefully remove the old cracked text block, using the paper for a variety of other crafts. The cover is then bound to the new mix of paper and illustrations. The binding technique I use is sewn with linen thread on a handmade bookbinding frame, providing a sturdy yet flexible binding. This binding allows the journal to open completely flat, perfect for writing and drawing comfortably.

**Please note that sometimes it is possible to keep the spine covering, as seen in the sample photo, but usually it is removed for an exposed spine style which allows the book to open flat, preferred by most artists.
