Description

Old book journal--you choose the book // Vintage School Readers // Recycled Book

Choose the book you'd like me to remake into a new journal for you! I have so many old books waiting to be converted into rebound journals, so I decided to give you a glimpse of my bookshelf to see if there is one you would like me to make into a custom journal, just for you.

This listing is for one rebound journal. You choose from the five books in the photos, all vintage school readers from the 1970's, from Pathway Publishers. Colour appearance may vary with different computer monitors.

Your book will be lovingly disassembled to allow the book covers to be reglued over the spine edge so there are no raw edges on the covers. Cover endpapers will be a surprise: maps, old text pages from the existing books, or decorative paper. Your journal will be bound with waxed linen thread using a double needle coptic binding, leaving a lovely chain stitch on the spine. This allows the book to lie perfectly flat when open.

The inside will be filled with at least 140 pages (counting both sides), of various reclaimed papers, all blank on at least one side. If you have specific needs regarding the type of paper used, please message me before ordering. To see the types of reclaimed papers I use in my rebound journals, please take a look at the other journals in this section:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrairiePeasant?section_id=6061496

Please indicate which of the following books you would like me to use when you check out:
♦ Days Go By, approximately 20 x 13 cm (8 x 5")
♦ More Days Go By, approximately 20 x 13 cm (8 x 5")
♦ Busy Times, approximately 20 x 13 cm (8 x 5")
♦ New Friends, approximately 20 x 13 cm (8 x 5")
♦ More New Friends, approximately 20 x 13 cm (8 x 5")

Please allow 7-10 days for completion of your journal before it will be mailed.

If you wish to purchase the book pages that I remove to make your journal, you may do so with this separate listing: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/176632299/old-book-pages-vintage-book-pages-inners

For multiple items, I will combine shipping with any items purchased in my other shop prairiethreads.etsy.com for items shipped to the same address and will refund any overpayment in shipping greater than $2.50.

By purchasing this item you agree to my shop’s policies. Please take time to read them.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I can accept Paypal, Credit Cards or Etsy Gift Cards for payment at this time.

If payment is not received within 3 hours of purchase, and you have not contacted me regarding a concern with your payment, I will cancel your order with Etsy. If you still wish to buy the item, payment must be immediate at the time of purchase.

LOCAL BUYERS: if you would like to pay cash or use a credit card in person, and pick up your item, I can accept Canadian dollar at par, as my shop prices are listed in US$. You can also message me for a coupon code for local pickup to save on shipping.

Returns & exchanges

All of my items are made with great attention to detail. I hope you will be happy with your purchase. If there is a problem, please contact me immediately and we can work out a solution together. If it is decided that a return is necessary, shipping costs remain the responsibility of the buyer.

Shipping policies

If you are paying with Paypal, please make sure your Paypal address and your Etsy address are the same. If they are different, I will ship to your Etsy address unless immediately advised at checkout in "message to seller."

All items that are ready to ship will be shipped within 3 business days after receipt of payment (custom orders will be shipped in 7-14 days). All items are sent through Canada Post, which although I recognize is more costly than the service from our neighbors to the south is still the most economical from Canada. I try to be accurate with shipping costs, but if the actual shipping cost is less than the quoted cost, particularly for multiple items, I can refund any difference greater than $2.50 to you. (Keep in mind the exchange rate if you see a slight difference when your package arrives.)

If you require shipping insurance/tracking, please contact me and I can recalculate the shipping costs for you with this included. If you require faster international shipping, Express post or couriers can be used—-please contact me and I can provide an estimate. Any duties, customs, taxes and tariffs are the responsibility of the customer.

I will combine shipping costs for any items purchased in my other shop, PrairieThreads.etsy.com for items shipped to the same address. I try to reuse clean packaging materials for shipping in order to reduce waste. I don't include a paper receipt with orders to save on paper waste unless specifically requested in the "message to seller."

Please feel free to contact me ask any questions before purchasing.
