Vintage Book Journal / Sketchbook - Microwave Cookbook

Description

I made this blank book by carefully removing the covers from a vintage book and then I rebound them with new, hand-cut pages.

The covers came from the Microwave Cookbook, published in 1982. The book features an orange and red rainbow design on a white background. The endpapers are bright red.

I bound the book with a double strand of natural-colored waxed linen thread using the Coptic stitch, a very durable binding method that allows the book to open completely flat.

This book will hold up well to daily use, so go ahead and carry it with you for those unexpected moments of inspiration!

This book contains 96 blank pages (48 sheets) of heavyweight artists’ paper, which accepts a variety of media beautifully, including pencil, pen, charcoal/pastel, collage, and light ink/watercolor washes.

Size in inches: 10 x 8.25 x 1
Size in centimeters: 25.5 x 21 x 2.5
