Sewn book bindings can intimidating. But the more you do the better you get.
Every time I make a Coptic stitch bound book, I need to refresh my memory and skills.
So with this journal I set perfection aside and embraced the re-learning of the coptic stitch binding.
When journals are too perfect and precious, then I seem to be reluctant to use them. So I guess is is great to have this less than perfect journal for doodles, lists, notes and drawing.
If you would like to explore re-use old books this summer, then stay on the printmaking list below and I will keep you posted.
