Second off the Loom

The completed book, covered in a large piece of my favourite lamb skin. It was once a lightly used coat, purchased for a mere five dollars.

My second attempt on the binding loom or jig is bigger, bluer and better, in some ways. I learned a few things before beginning this project, but also during and after construction… So there is a Third off the Loom as well, it just needs some pictures taken.

It’s difficult to photograph a book. All sides can’t possibly show at once. This one has blank pages. Write your own story 🙂

Hand torn pages. Nobody sells packets of miniature paper, so there is the work of half an hour folding and tearing. Cheaper than a therapist, and it looks good in the book 😀
