This one-of-a-kind travel journal was upcycled from the 1978 printing of "Making Your Family Life Happy" by Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania.

120 unlined pages (front / back) = 3 registers with 10 folded sheets each.

Spine Length: 6.4 inches (16.3 cm)
Cover Width: 4.2 inches (10.7 cm)
Thickness: .66 inches (1.7 cm)

Upcycled vintage hardcover book.
Unlined bright white 70 lb text weight paper.
Several feet of hand-dyed linen bookbinding thread.

I removed the cover from the original book and re-covered the inside with luscious light green Lokta paper. The pages are hand-cut with rounded corners, and bound snugly in a long-stitch style to allow the star stitching pattern to be visible on the spine of the book. I used linen bookbinding thread hand-dyed with roasted grains to maintain the vintage feel and look. The cover is green with gold lettering.
