Book Binding; some books I made a while back

My very first hand bound hard cover journal.

Eddie Bauer bags are so cool. I used this one to make a cover for a blank design journal.

Cutting out spaces in a leather spine allows for more exposure of the signatures inside. I had to be careful to sew in a way to prevent stress on the pages.

I am a designer for DaySpring (a subsidiary of Hallmark) and this is one of my latest journal projects. This one is machine bound, but its great to be able to merge hobby and work.
