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.
