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 three remaining books in the photos, all beautiful vintage books with a music theme. Colour appearance may vary with different computer monitors.

Your book will be lovingly disassembled to allow the bookcloth 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. 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:
♦ Marie, 1894, approximately 19.5 x 13.5 cm (7.5 x 5.5")
♦ The First Violin, 1877, approximately 19 x 12.5 cm (7.5 x 5")
♦ Songs of the Church, 1971, approximately 21 x 13.5 cm (8.25 x 5.5")
**Note: Songs of the Century has been sold

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

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 $1.50.

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

If you are not a local buyer paying with cash at pick-up, please do not check "other" for payment. In this shop this is only for local buyers. If you wish to pay with a credit card, you must go through Paypal (you don't need to have a Paypal account).
