This is a model I made of a piano hinge book with a varied collection of stationery letterhead and scrapbooking paper with a beautiful cardstock in purple for the covers. I dyed silk twist thread for the wrapping on the skewers and added a few beads. I’ve seen these made with huge hunks of beads on a dozen or more threads and fuzzy wool and such for decoration but, I prefer to see the book and paper without too much distracting decoration.
The collage on the front uses a playing card from my collection, scanned in and then printed and folded, along with some papers from the signatures of the book. I am now making a slightly bigger one in a blue and yellow colourway and nautical theme with some maps from an atlas.
