Altered Book Journals

These journals are truly works of art in book form.  They are created from recycled, hard cover books.  The pages are removed, the covers are hand painted, collaged or inked,  then signatures filled with dyed papers are sewn into the spine.

All of my journals are created in a pet friendly, smoke free environment.  These journals are lovingly made by hand, not by machine and this means they may not be “perfect”.  Their slight imperfections only lend to their charm and uniqueness.

Every effort is made to represent the colors as accurately as possible, but please note that colors can vary by the type of device and display they are viewed on.

Vintage Butterfly Journal – $42

This journal was made by collaging decorative tissue paper over a hard cover book and then adding layers of ink, paint washes and matte medium until the perfect shade was achieved.  The journal measures approximately 8 1/2 inches high and 5 3/4 inches wide.  There are 3 signatures sewn in, containing 20 pages each (40 front and back) for a total of 120 pages of coffee dyed papers.  There is also a bookplate on the front cover that adds to the vintage charm.
