No Greater Love outside covers
This is a one-of-a-kind journal upcycled from a discarded novel, "No Greater Love" by Danielle Steel.  I embellished the cover with pages from the original book, heart cutouts, and felt ribbon.  (The inside scoop:  I originally intended the back of this journal to be its front.  You see, I have a little problem remembering which direction a book title is to face.  As the result the back of this journal now has lots of upside down hearts on it.  Kind of like tear drops, which may accidentally be meaningful too.)

open pages

  I bound the pages into the book cover using 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 five signatures (a term for groups of pages).

These can be used as writing prompts.

mischief quote
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.)
