*cardboard interior for covers
*handbound with coptic stitch, waxed linen thread
*papers detailed with photos below

Dedication: A Journal of Writing created for the Viable Paradise Workshop and thereafter in this year MMXI anno Domini by the common reckoning created for [[me]] by her hand, this seventh day of October known also in [[our house]] as the day that the giant cement truck did its best to murder our mighty oak, may it live to shelter many sedges hereafter, and also birds and squirrels.

I really like the vintage vibe of the cover with the colors of the fabrics. I also love how you incorporated important papers into the book too

The papers are amazing! And I agree with RougeRaven: the fabrics really do lend to the vintage feel.
