Posts Tagged ‘book cloth’

Actually these are from last week, but let’s not be picky eh?  I’m still slowly trying to slimline my studio and struggling because I can’t bear to just throw things out, so it leads to quite a bit of head-scratching to come up with creative ways to use things.  I thought that these saddle-stitched exercise books were a good way to use up three things: some coloured paper that’s been languishing on a shelf for years, some book cloth that I’ve always struggled to team with anything (the blue, the orange is actually offcuts from some previous books), and old ordnance survey maps (of which I have, er, quite a few).  They turned out beautifully: deceptively simple on the outside, but interestingly colourful within.

I won’t be adding these to my Etsy shop until next month, but if you’d like to reserve any of them then let me know.  The A5 blue ones will be available in two sets of three, and the A7 orange ones in a single set of four.

These sweet little notebooks are, once again, a result of using up leftovers.  Slightly dented/creased signatures of paper teamed with scrapbook paper, random cardboard, and offcuts of bookcloth for the covers.  Voila, two composition style notebooks.  Available in my Etsy shop for a bargain price, click here to view the listing.

Towards the back end of last year the lovely Katy of Creating Misericordia asked me to make her a notebook/sketchbook to use whilst planning her new kitchen.  She provided one of her own drawings to use on the front cover of the book and left the rest up to me.  I chose a lovely dark green bookcloth, which I thought would be both hardwearing and attractive.

The book is A5 in size, and the pages are a standard white 100gsm as chosen by Katy.  The coptic binding has been done with 100% linen thread, and the bookcloth is from Ratchford Ltd.
