This book wasn't what I expected. I thought that it was about how to decorate journals with fabric. It is actually about how to make journals out of fabric (not just the covers, but all the pages). These become more works of art then anything else (i.e. they aren't the sort of journal that you could use to write in). The book discusses various forms of fabric book-making, and includes a gallery of many other people's creations.
