So, I've been carrying around this recolored picture from Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics, I think it was from the sample at Free Comic Book Day before the Absolute Sandman came out to show the recoloring.  Anyway, I've always wanted to make some sort of dream journal out of it.

I finally felt like I had enough practice with the coptic stitch to give it a go, because I wanted to have it with the spine exposed. I also wanted to do it with cardstock, even though I usually bind with letter press, because I did a book for a friend where that worked out lovely for multi media journaling.

Here's the cover.  I got a little excited with the glitter.



And the spine!



The back...



And the experimental embellishing of the inside cover and first page:



Hope you enjoy!
