The Farmer's Pocket Journal

My mom said, How 'bout a small book for men to carry in their pocket?  Businessmen, farmers, carpenters, sportsmen...  And with a pencil loop.  

        I think it's a great idea! Leather bound of course and with rivets.

Talk about green!!!

These two Coca-Cola journals I made completely from repurposed paper. For the covers, I used the carton of a Coca-Cola cans package. The inside pages were dug out of the recycle bin. Yes they were clean.

New Years journal

I tried to get a copy of a cool new journal I designed for DaySpring to write in for 2015 as I was right at the end of my old journal at the end of the year.  But they weren't in stock yet so I got an old scrap of leather and some old blueprints and started putting it together as the new year rolled in.  I find it interesting to write around all the drawings.  

 

Another game board book

I made another game board book over the weekend. Candy land.

One of last week's books

I cut up and old scrabble board and made some books. 

Yes, I'm still making books

A new small series with thick tooled leather covers I call "Sherwood"
