Handmade Books by Kate Black

Paper Crafts

Handmade books are a thing of beauty, and Etsy seller Kate Black’s are among the loveliest I’ve seen. This is her “Domestic Animals” journal/sketchbook, made with images from a 1960s kid’s book, sustainable grass green lokta paper, and fun polka-dot endpapers–all bound up with chocolate brown waxed linen thread. Now doesn’t that beat scribbling your sketches on boring old notebook paper? Link.
