This is my first ever attempt at bookbinding and making my own “proper” journal. The project is in response to Nik The Booksmith’s classics challenge to create a journal based on a literary classic – in my case I chose H.G. Wells War of the Worlds. One of my all-time favourite books.

To watch the flip through of my journal click the YouTube link below. This is NOT a process video as it took me almost two weeks to create from start to finish with a few breaks in between waiting for various resources to arrive from around the globe! However, I’m sure you’ll be able to appreciate the work that I put into it and as it is my very first attempt at a full binding project – you’ll forgive me if I get a few things wrong or did a few things wrong…it’s a learning curve!
I have included a few photos in a gallery below if you want a closer look at some of the pages in this journal.
