Recycled old book journal--you choose the book // Books of Fables and Fairy Tales // Vintage Book Journal

Choose a fairy tale book to be converted into a blank journal! I have so many vintage books waiting to be made into journals, so I decided to give you a glimpse on my bookshelf to see if there is a special 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 much loved books of fables and fairy tales. Colour appearance may vary with different computer monitors.

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:

Please indicate which of the following books you would like me to use when you check out:
♦ Andersen's Fairy Tales, (undated), approximately 19 x 12.5 cm (7.5 x 5")
♦ The Wizard of Oz, (1963), approximately 19 x 12.5 cm (7.5 x 5")
♦ A Wonder Book, (1967), approximately 19 x 12.5 cm (7.5 x 5")
♦ Around the World in Eighty Days, (1976), approximately 21 x 14 cm (8.25 x 5.5")
♦ Enchanting Stories, (1940), approximately 20 x 14.5 cm (8 x 5.75")

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