||What indeed are the signs
of these unusual times
that confront us on all sides?
This unique journal is a way for you
to record what is happening around
and to you and to react
to our ever-changing world.
The journal is made from a discarded nonfiction book, "Signs of the Times." I have embellished the outside cover with 1950's birthday decorations pasted over pages from the original book.
I bound the seven signatures (a term for groups of pages) into the cover using long and kettle stitches, which are visible on the spine over colorful ribbon anchors.
|Back to the Top||I have included out-of-context quotes from the original book on several of the pages.|
|Back to the Top||Writers may use the quotes as writing prompts for inspiration or reflection,|
|Back to the Top||As
points of agreement or disagreement,
|Back to the Top|| Or
simply as places to begin 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.

I have reenforced the inside covers with pages from the original book.
On the inside back cover is my unique signature medallion, which also indicates the year I made the book.
