I found two books on bookbinding yesterday in the college library. Though I took a bookmaking course this semester, I want to be absolutely sure I can help Michaela make her journals for her trip to Wales this summer. We've ambitiously planned to even make the paper inside ourselves.
In the mean time, I'm hoping to find a quick alternative to buying a journal. Walt Whitman just pinned a few scraps of paper together, which he always had waiting in his pocket.
I just read an article about someone who creates journals out of recycled, already-printed-on office paper. That could really be interesting. http://www.makezine.com/blog/archive/2007/05/how_to_recycle_office_pap.html
