I wanted to make my best friend, who is a total alien loving X-Files freak, a sketchbook and when I found this book at the thrift store I felt like I hit the jackpot!! I followed rosered's hardcover sketchbook tutorial and voila! The perfect gift!





I used ribbon to close it because I covered the spine on the inside with ribbon and it kept wanting to pop open! But I think it works well with it.

Oh and if you get a book with a lot of pages be prepared to be folding computer paper for a long while! Enjoy!

I am interested in personal, more-art swaps.  If you are interested in an earnest and unique package, please PM me.  Equivalent trade isn't necessary, and while I intend to send more-art, I am not adverse to receiving more craft!

That's awesome!  I'm a crazy X-Files person myself, and I've gotta tell ya -- you've committed no crime by cutting up that book.  I'm absolutely sure that it is better off now.  I bet your friend loves it!

I really, really like what you did.  Where did you get the block to print the "X"?  Did you make your own wood-/lino-cut?

I remember when I was in high school I had to make my own book and I had a print of the X-Files "x" in it.

Great work: it looks clean, professional and well-crafted.

Thanks for everyones comments!! Actually the X was already on the book. The selling point for me. I hit the jackpot that day!!
