This Coptic-bound guest book is another custom book that was given as a Christmas gift. I can't tell you how exciting it was for me on Christmas Day to know that people all around the country -- some that I know, but mostly people I've never met -- were receiving books that I made with my own two hands. I put so much care into each and every book that I make, and I hope this makes receiving one of my books so much more special than a mass-produced item.
When Beth contacted me through my Etsy shop, she was drawn to a similar book I had made using this orange spirograph paper for the covers. (It's one of my favorite papers as well!) She wanted me to create a custom guest book for some friends but was curious if I could make a horizontal book and if I could print lines on the pages.
Up until this point, all of the books in my collection had either been vertical or square, and they all had blank pages. But I ended up loving the way that this book came out and I've made several books in a similar format since then. I'm please to announce that I will be adding this type of book to my repertoire, and the first book in my new collection has been added to my shop.
