 This is a one-of-a-kind journal, upcycled from a rescued January, 1985, National Geographic magazine.

                inside view with quote
I have included out-of-context quotes from the original text on several of the pages.
This one reads, "Can a kitten raised by a dog find happiness with a 230-pound gorilla...?"

Writers may use the quotes as writing prompts for inspiration or reflection, as points of agreement or disagreement,

Or simply as places to begin a meandering thought journey.

I use a glue-based drum-fold technique to bind the new journal pages into the book cover, which I have reinforced with orange card stock.  This means each page is made up of two pieces of paper glued together.  The pages will therefore resist bleed through if the writer/artist uses markers such as Sharpies.  The paper also has a surface shine similar to regular magazine paper.  I have hand torn each paper along a straight-edge ruler to give the pages a rough texture when viewed from the side.
