Project Pronounced Complete #7

Tall Sally was the title of the book in one of my book binding books. It is tall and narrow with envelope inserts sewn in the middle of each signature. The placement of the holes in the spine was something new to learn for me. The whole book was a delicious challenge. I began this book with the idea to send it in for submission with all the time and effort it was going to take be to completed. Yikes...the move, new business, and no art studio for a year put this plan on hold.

After I took the book out of the "to be completed" box, I was no longer interested in what I had started.  I no longer liked the cover that I had originally made.  The first thing I did was remake the front cover by salvaging the embellishments I wants to reuse.  My art style had changed during the time span when I had first started this project.  I just had to close my eyes to the first four signatures that I made and move on.....and that is exactly what I did.

You can see the envelopes
One of my favorite page layouts.
I kept my artwork simple.
I did more rubber stamping than collage.
This is where the previous signatures were completed and I started the new signature with NYC.  I went from doing a lot of collage to a very simple format.

Sara, I love the simplicity of this book. My favorite things are the back, the spine and your "all the tea in China" pages. Beautifully done!
