Been trying to learn to make books lately. With each one I try a new material or technique. I now have a wood block one, a couple leather ones, and some cloth covered ones, some with real pages that don't open and one that's laying open and can't close.
The redish one on the top is leather - I tried to paint some gold decoration on it. Maybe I'll have a steadier hand with the next one ;-) The open one is a journal with hand written pages in French that I found on the internet.
And - yay! - they fit on my tiny bookshelves!
