Okay, I am a total whore for the New York Times
Sunday magazine. On November 11th, they had a photo shoot of character actors from Coen Brothers movies in dramatic scenes inspired by the mood of No Country for Old Men
. I regularly razor cut magazine and newspaper articles and mail them to friends, especially my brother. But these images were too brilliant to stay flat. So they got caught up in my recent burst of Mod Podge madness and made into a set of notebooks for my brother's Christmas present.
This is the short stack.
The largest book is the journal. Kelly MacDonald is on the cover . . .
. . . and on the back of the journal we see the bar door ajar, it looks like . . .
. . . Javier Bardem is right on her heels. (text reads: she questions her fate in the draw of the cards)
The journal has magnet closures and two interior pockets for ephemera.
Next in the stack is Steve Buscemi on the cover of the Places to Go notebook.
Bound at the ankles . . .
. . . with a rubber band closure.
On the inside front cover Holly Hunter looks for People to See.
The Calls to Make notebook has a twine wrap and (broken) pencil tuck closure that imples violence.
The back cover continues the image, but only begins the story.
A page torn from the C's in the phone book provides the lining.
John Turturro graces the cover of the Books Read/To Read notebook.
His riboon bookmark continued in the red rubber band closure.
Inside, the words that echoed through the Hotel Earle.
