For my friend's birthday I reconstructed an old book about hairstyles. In our town there are alot of really funny hair salons with very odd pictures on them. We have always laughed about them. So I figured I'd make her a hair themed book. I tore apart the book and glued all of the orginal drawings together so that none of the books text could be seen. Then I made an embroidery embellishment to each page that had been glued. Then I inserted my photo pages (I just printed each photo on to high quality cardstock). I also added pictures of her that show off her lovely locks. Then for the end pages I added funny pictures on heavy watercolor paper to keep the cover in tact. For the binding I used a sewing machine then used a tapestry needle and embroidery thread to bind all my sewn sections together.
**This is the first book recontruction or book binding I have attempted and feel pretty good about the way it came out. I did not follow any tutitorials really just trail and error.
I love all of the strings that are coming out of it. It looks really DIY

Back cover. She likes to wear fake mustaches so I glued one in there.
Thanks for looking!
