Shakespeare outside covers
This one-of-a-kind journal is upcycled from a discarded copy of  "Shakespeare: Twenty-Three Plays and Sonnets."
I embellished the cover with a card from the game of Authors, the very deck I used as a child!
I bound the seven signatures of pages (a term for groups of pages folded together) to the cover using a cross variant of long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine.
