Some time ago I had a class at the university about restoring old books. Then I've sterted to thinking about making my own and after a few months from an initial idea, here's the first result. A wolfbook! :D
I've made a scetchbook as well, have to fihish it today :)

It's made as a Beltaine gift, I can't wait 'till tomorrow to see how it gonna be seen :P
Everything is made from scratches - it's NOT a decorated ready notebook, I've cut every single sheet of paper, sewed them together [with blue matchig thread], glued and made the cover from scratches too. It's took me like forever to do the inner covers...
The patterns on the leather are burned, it has a gaelic text on the backcover.
My, it was lots and lots of work but I like the outcome a lot :)

16x13cm, 106 grid paper sheets, leather cover, satin ribbon, blue colour paper [decorated with Derwent Metallic Silver coloured pencil, Faber-Castell White coloured pencil, Derwent Onyx Dark pencil, Faber-Castell Ecco Pigment liner].
2013

Yes, I DO take commissions for notebooks, just with other designs than my personal logo ;) Please note me for details!

Świetne, naprawdę efekt jest niesamowity. Ile czasu zajęło Ci zrobienie tego? :D

Dzięki :) Ze dwa wieczory, ale to była moja pierwsza ręcznie robiona książka, więc straciłam trochę czasu niepotrzebnie ;)

Już od jakiegoś czasu chodzi za mną pomysł zrobienia takiej ręcznie robionej książki i stworzenia z niej albumu ze zdjęciami... właśnie mi o tym przypomniałaś. Wyszło ci to świetnie, i tak się zastanawiam, bo ja to w ogóle nie mam zielonego pojęcia, jak za takie coś się brać - trudne jest wykonanie takiej książki?
