The Wide Wide World

Some bibliophiles would be horrified but I love ripping the middle out of books (gasp). OK, so they do have to be in a pretty shabby state and destined for the scrap heap, but if that’s the case, I think it’s a gift to the book, to myself, and in this case, to a dear friend, to give it a new lease of life as a scrappy, bits ‘n bobs journal bursting with fraying threads, rough edges and paper ephemera from time and places afar.

  1. Beautiful altered book journal! Your pictures make me want to just curl up in a chair and leaf through your journal. I hope your friend is truly blessed by the love you put into it!
