This journal below I took with me. It is 9 1/4 inches wide and 15 1/2 inches high. What was I thinking! What a boat anchor to be lugging around! But it gave me lots of space to glue portions of brocures and write lots of commentary.
The photo album below is 7 3/8 inches wide by 11 1/2 inches high. A somewhat easier size to carry in a travel bag. It is similar in style to the journal above. The sections were spaced far enough apart to accommodate the insertion of the photos, or in the case above, brochure clippings, ticket stubs, etc.
And the final book.......
This one is 4 3/8 by 6 3/8. The cover paper is of a crumpled map.
The little France sign hangs from fishing line which is hardly noticeable and keeps the sign from getting lost.
You can see that there are six envelopes. These hold post cards and 4x6 inch photos. They are sewn into concertina folds. This design is a spinoff from a concertina workshop that I took with Daniel Kelm at Garage Annex School in Easthampton, Massachusetts.
Little paper "buttons" and thin, waxed linen thread hold the envelope flaps down. The "buttons" and envelopes, by the way, are made from manilla file folders.
