Worktable Wednesday

Today I worked on completing covers for more of my space travel journals. I started off by carving out the insets for the spaceship badges.

Gluing bookboard covers for handmade book

…which was followed by gluing in the end pages. Luckily, I was able to find another copy of Stars by Isaac Asimov. This means that the journal will be produced in an edition of twelve. I guess I would call it a variable edition because the end pages are all different.

Here’s what the journal looks like when it’s finished:

It has both white and black pages. The black pages are for those who feel that they need to take space notes. Doesn’t everyone have space notes?

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
