Mystery at the Moss-covered Mansion outside
                  covers
This one-of-a-kind journal is upcycled from a rescued copy of the 1941 Nancy Drew novel "The Mystery at the Moss-Covered Mansion" by Carolyn Keene.
I embellished the original cover with decorative braid, 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.
