This old unwanted book has been made into a new ecofriendly blank journal! Part of my Rebound Journal series, the covers are from a vintage Alice and Jerry Basic Reader “The New Singing Wheels” by Mabel O'Donnell, illustrated by Florence and Margaret Hoopes (1955). Aren't the cover illustrations fabulous? Colour appearance may vary with different computer monitors.

This book was lovingly disassembled to allow the bookcloth to be reglued over the spine edge so there are no raw edges on the covers. Covers are lined with a coordinating artist's paper. 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 is filled with a generous 140 pages (counting both sides) of reclaimed super smooth white office paper, slightly heavier than copy paper. This paper takes all manner of pen, pencil, and markers.

This journal measures 20.5 x 14.5 cm (8 x 5.75”).
