Reliability outside covers
This is a one-of-a-kind journal upcycled from a discarded textbook, "Reliability for the Technologies." 
I glued pages from the original book over much of the cover and attached images stamped onto a copy of my original watercolor painting as well as (reliable) circle and square shapes cut from the same paper.  Ribbons
further embellish the cover and provide anchors for binding the blank pages into the journal.

inside pages
  I bound the pages into the spine of the book cover using long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine.  The book block (a term meaning all the pages of a book as a whole) contains three signatures (a term for groups of pages folded together).
