Ivanhoe outside covers
This one-of-a-kind journal is upcycled from a rescued copy of an 1899 edition of Sir Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe."
I embellished the original cover with decorative golden lace and gold-patterned ribbon, which not only decorates the cover but serves as anchors for the stitches which hold the blank pages to the cover.
I bound the five signatures of pages (a term for groups of pages folded together) to the cover using long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine.

inside
                front
I used a copy onto cardstock of my original pen and marker mandala drawing on the inside back and part of the inside front covers as well as to reinforce the spine.  I left visible the library checkout sheet from the original book on the inside front cover.
 

inside back
On the last page of the journal is my unique signature medallion, which also indicates the year I made the book.
The journal has an attached beaded ribbon bookmark.
