I thought this book would be appropriate for today's Throwback Thursday. It's a handmade, reborn book, that started life as an encyclopedia. I gutted it, and refilled it with red, green and ivory papers, including some sheet music pages. It's bound with a gold dowel, tied with lots of red and green ribbons. The cover embellishment is a resin frame that I filled with a vintage Santa pic.
I eventually turned this type of rebinding books into my Reborn Books class. I've made so many books using this technique, and I've sent many of them off to new homes. I have a stack of empty covers in my work room, destined to be reborn books some day, if I ever swing around in that direction with nothing else to do.
