What indeed are the signs
of these unusual times
that confront us on all sides?Signs of the
                  Times - outside cover
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 Signs of the Times - inside pages
I have included out-of-context quotes from the original book on several of the pages.
Back to the Top Signs of the Times - words quote
Writers may use the quotes as writing prompts for inspiration or reflection,
Back to the Top Signs of the Times - collaboration quote
As points of agreement or disagreement,
Back to the Top Signs of the Times - forces quote
 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.
