My handcrafted books are blank softcover Japanese-binding books. I can fill this type of book with pastel paper, watercolor paper, fine drawing papers, lined paper or sketchbook paper and manila. Each book has a unique image, watercolor or collage on the cover. It’s quite sturdy, even though it’s made entirely of paper with a little embroidery thread stitching it together.
My books can be sketchbooks, art journals, writing journals, scrapbooks, notebooks-- whatever kind of book you’d like. It’s made to be used and made more valuable because of the things you fill it with. The book itself is simple and enjoyable to make, and I have fun creating a new image on each cover. I hope you find using my books as fun and therapeutic as I have found making them.
