Expressions of
                  Friendship outside covers

This is a one-of-a-kind journal upcycled from a discarded book of short "Expressions of Friendship."  I embellished the ornate patterns on the original cover with layered satin and guilt-edged ribbon and a vintage photo of a group of friends.

                  inside pages

The pages of the journal are made from golden, marbled paper and are each hand torn to the size of the book.

I bound the pages into the book cover using a cross-variant of long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine over ribbons, which serve to anchor the cover to the book block (a term meaning all the pages of a book as a whole).  The book block contains two signatures (a term for groups of pages).

These can be used as writing prompts.

Or they may use the quote as the starting point for a meandering thought journey.

(Note: I give the page number of each quote, when available, and list the publication information on the last page of the journal.)

The paper for the inside front and back covers is a copy onto cardstock of my original watercolor painting.  I also use this paper to reinforce the spine.
