Normally when I look for hardcover books to make into journals, I usually choose them for the size of their covers, not for the cover itself. Sometimes though, I find books that I like the covers so much that I want to leave it just the way it is. That is the case for my Altered Book Travelers Journals. They have been turned into lovely journals with signatures inside that can be removed when you are done with them and you can add more of your own pages and keep the cover forever.
