While I was in the states I picked up a book kit for making a leather bound journal.


I was expecting it to be a little more involved, but once I got around to making it, the instructions just say to glue the text block onto the leather with PVA. The text book was already bound in the kit.

I think it took about ten minutes.

In spite of how simple it was, I kind of like the results. The bone thingie I’m using to close it was my own little addition. I like the feel of the leather. It’s got me thinking about trying out some leather bound books. I just need to find a source of leather. And maybe learn how to use it…
