Permission to Rest

Folded Paper Box

In a world full of people, only some want to fly, isn’t that crazy? Seal Most of the books in Books Unbound by Michael Jacobs don’t look like books.

In the pond

Here are some of altered book pages from my art journal; Me and my Bubble. A page I made after Maria and I cut out fishes and other ocean themed pictures from her dad’s old diving magazines, some from 1970’s. I found some great imagery in them. Another winter spread. Feeling the cold all the […]

Blank hard bound journals

People who keep journals have life twice.Jessamyn West Two hand bound books that I’ve made. A gray one with linen fabric as cover, and a black book covered with patterned plastic fabric. Both contains white blank drawing papers, great for sketching, water colours or gluing things in. I’m always looking for blank books like these […]
