This one-of-a-kind journal was upcycled from the 1996 German translation and printing of Bad Girls by Cynthia Voigt.

120 unlined pages (front / back) = 7 signatures with varying numbers of folded sheets.
PLUS 34 original (German) pages (front / back) bound throughout the book.

Spine Length: 8.6 inches (21.9 cm)
Cover Width: 5.35 inches (13.6 cm)
Thickness: 1.25 inches (3.2 cm)

Materials:
Upcycled hardcover book.
100 lb text weight cream color paper (archival, 30% recycled, made with wind power).
Several feet of green linen bookbinding thread.

I removed the cover from the original book, cutting to size. Then, I carefully dismantled each signature, so that I could rebind original pages within the book. The copyright page and table of contents are bound within the first signature, as are many other pages throughout. I refashioned the title page into a library style pocket for the back - which is intentionally askew (they are Bad Girls! after all). I cut the pages to size, and folded each signature. The lightly toothed paper is excellent with pencil, ink and light applications of a dry adhesive (such as acid-free glue stick). Finally, I bound the book in Coptic style which allows the stitching pattern to be visible on the spine of the book, and allows the book to lie flat for easy writing and drawing.
