Bookmaking: My Ben and Emma book

This is my second hand made book.  Important features: mixture of newsprint style old fashioned school ruled papers, graph paper, account ledger paper.  Hand stitched binding, still only semi-methodical with some jury rigging to get it tight in the end.  Added illustrations taken from my Open Mic sketch collection, loosely "Ben and Emma."  They are, in true form, both horrid and nearly unrecognizable.  I'm sorry.  I never claimed to be a portrait artist; I just like to draw pictures of people.

I'm using this book for journalling and writing music, principally. 

I love this paper

I just used card stock and bent it around for the cover/spine.
