And now for something completely normal:

8.5 x 6.5 cm, hand-dyed yellowish paper (120 g/cm), blue cotton endbands with a glass bead bookmark string, vintage leather. Fits into a pocket, you can keep a pencil tied to it and have all those passwords and codes and phone numbers in one place.

For sale as soon as I figure out paypal and photograph at least 2 more books I’ve made (I’ll make one big post with all the sale stuff then). Seriously, I’m hitting a point where affording the materials for new books is one thing and finding space to keep them is another!

Gotta sell old stuff to make new stuff “:D

Ideas? Questions? Suggestions?
