My husband and I went to the memorial day sale at half priced books and I got a few clearance antique books. My husbands loves literature and reading and I like looking at the covers. I judge all old books by their covers :) I look for letter pressed, colorful, borders, cool titles and pictures. This one I found for a buck (sweet!) + 20% off (booyah) and broke out my book binding supplies. I hadn't made a book since fall 2007 so I had to reference my handouts from the 3 classes I took . I like how it turned out. It now resides in my purse as a drawing journal. It has all watercolor paper in it.
