Your Own Personal Journal from Recycled Covers

Owen has the Hardy Boy collection. He had a duplicate copy of #17, The Secret Warning that had been damaged so I removed the block text, reused the covers and rebound fresh journaling pages inside. I've added a pocket and a envelope to store any little piece of emphemera I find along the way. This is my favorite aesthetic journal. I use them for taking notes, art ideas, sayings, studio stuff and my my deepest secrets! $30

You will need to bring a book with a hard cover that you don't mind removing the text from. Your local second hand store has tons if you don't. The cover can have an image, text or be plain. The choice it yours. It should be no larger than 5.5 inches X 8.5 inches.
