TERM: Cloth Cover

Covering a journal in cloth is a tricky deal. But I decided to give it a try and see what could be done with it. Basically this is a standard-sized 3 journal (5.5 x 8.5) that has had the cover boards covered in various forms of decorated cloth. In the cases shown here they were covered in a collage of cloth to make the books appear 'quilt-like'.

The tan journal to the right has leather (pig) fore-corners, a cloth spine and cover and no closure.

The blue jean journal (below) has a cloth spine and cover, no fore-corners and leather ties as closures. The handy thing about cloth covers such as these are that you can really personalize the journal to the person it is being made for. The tan journal was made as an example and sold to a one-time client, but the blue jean journal was designed for a client that has collected several of my books.
