Wedding Journal

I got a call one day from a girl who wanted a book for wedding guests to write in to give marriage advice to a bride and groom.  I used soft sheep skin and lined it with handmade paper.  The pages are French Paper's aged newsprint and it's all sewn together with a single thread. It's symbolic of the marriage commitment.  The cover is like the husband, the pages can represent the wife and it's all held together with the cord of love.  Separately, they're not complete and breaking the thread would destroy the book.
