Another book made

I bought this book as a result of Janice’s recommendation at her book binding demo at Daniel Smith last weekend.

I followed the directions in it to make this journal.  It’s covered with a 100% cotton fabric.  The paper is good for fountain pen writing.  It’s what Brian Goulet (of Goulet Pens) recommends:  32 pound (120/m2) premium laser paper.   I folded a standard letter sized page (8.5 x 11) in half.  The cover boards are just a tiny bit larger.  So it’s about 8.75 x 6.5.

The end papers are something I already had.

It opens flat.

I made a punch template as well as one for the cover boards to I can easily make more.
