These books are incredibly versatile, and make great gifts. Use one as a journal, list-making book, diary, scrapbook, baby book, smashbook, doodlebook, prayer book… just about any purpose you can think of! Every book is handmade and comes with a card listing the reclaimed items used in creating it. I make some journals from scratch, constructing the covers from recycled cardboard & other materials, while some are made from reclaimed books. The pages are hand-stitched into the spine; some journals contain plain filler paper, and some contain a variety of recycled papers. Some are simply made, and some are heavily embellished. Either way, you will find lots of spaces for writing, doodling, and collaging photos.
