Rustic Nature Journal

Recently I dyed a stack of print making paper using tea and made some marks with rust and leaves. I made so many pieces of paper that I folded them into signatures and bound them into a nature journal.


The binding is a three hole, two needle coptic stitch which holds everything together firmly. The cover boards are covered with a handmade paper from India.NatureJournal6I used pages from a vintage botanical book for the end sheets:


Here’s a closer look at some of the pages:

    Do you have a tutorial on all of your binding methods? I have no idea on how to do any of them. Please help. Thanks in advance. ~ Sandy Whitten

    Thanx for your reply. I appreciate the information very much.

  4. I’d love to understand how you attach the covers – I’ve done lots of coptic stitched books – but have only seen this type of attachment a few times.
    Thanks in advance.
