Front Cover
This is a one-of-a-kind journal made from a discarded copy of "The She Project" by Lauren Ohlgren.

On the front cover is my signed original soft-pastel drawing.  I have applied a varnish to it so it will resist casual water and other damage.

Spine view
The pages of the journal are 140 lb., cold-press watercolor paper.
I bound the pages into the book cover using a cross variant of long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine over ribbons, which serve to anchor the cover to the book block (a term which means all the pages of a book as a whole).  The book block contains six signatures (a term for groups of pages). 


Open book view
The paper length was such that when I folded it to make signatures I ended up with one full width and one "short" width page.  Artists may choose to use the short width for supporting studies and notes or for entirely new compositions.

Rules Quote
I include out-of-context quotes from the original book on several of the pages.
These can be used as art-inspiring prompts.


Artists may react for or against the prompts or ignore them all together. 

Flow Quote
  Or they may use the quote as the starting point for a meandering art journey.

Note: I give the page number of each quote, when available, and list the publication information on the last page of the journal.

On the inside back cover of the journal is my unique signature medallion, which also indicates the year I made the book.
