As promised, new bullet journals with cloth covers and drawstring bags! I picked eight of my favourite book cloths and linen fabrics to match them. I'm very fond of the soft herringbone linen (featured here in blue and light brown), but it's a nightmare to use on book covers, so I'm glad I got to use it on these drawstring bags. The other bags are in solid colours with various textures.
The best thing about making books in lots is that they create pleasing stacks. There are naturally other benefits, but I'm really loving these stacks...
This whole lot is available for sale in my shop.
The grid dots aren't even visible in this photo! They're really so light they hide in the recycled paper unless you're looking for them. Here's proof there are dots there:
While I was making these my printer decided to stop working and entered the loop of eternal false paper jams with no paper in sight. Never fun, but this time things got so bad I ended up ordering a new printer altogether. The new one should print special papers (=thicker materials) up to size A3, so I should probably start imagining new bookish things to print! I generally avoid creating artists' books as they're a bit scary to make - lots of emotional investment and things that go so far beyond the technical aspect of things - but maybe I should try to be brave later this year. Right now I'm too tired for any type of bravery as the pollen season is sucking the life out of me. This spring wasn't supposed to be a rough one, but I'm currently in a disagreement with the forecast. I hope it's easy to breathe wherever you are, and if not, I hope your tissues are of the softest kind!
