I find connections among books, art, music, libraries, travel, crafts and food.

A Book a Week 2014: Made, Altered, Repaired. Week 17

Week of 28 April

Blank Journal from vintage book cover.

My daughter tried her hand at altering a vintage book. She loves the French language (and anything French), so was attracted to this volume. She removed the text block, but kept the Title Page and Vocabulary with which to attach a new blank text block.

Emy sewed the signatures together with a Coptic stitch and attached the block to the covers by gluing a line on the front edge and back edge of the text block.

It came out great!
