My first book I now realise is an artist's journal and a healing journal. I made it while I was in hospital in the art room. I painted and collaged various pages torn from magazines and then sewed them together with string and grasses. I made it 4 years ago and only rediscovered it this year when I read about artist's journals and healing journals. I still have a great affection for the little book and it has lots of memories.
As a few people in the Everydaymatters yahoo group also mention bookmaking I thought I would post this photo. I'll post another one next week of a healing journal I made when my cat died.
There is nothing like doing something for the first time. I'm loving my new adventures into book making. As a librarian books are a passion for me.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia
