Golden Oldie Books

Over decades whenever somebody in the family would sort out books they would not throw them away - these books ended up on our shelves. Apart from the crime novels some of the covers were fantastic so I decided to upcycle them and have them turned into journals: my Golden Oldie Books.

The journals are hand sewn with coptic stitch (single needle) using thread in a colour matching the cover design; their size is approx. 11 x 18 cm. 120 pages. Every book is unique.
