Gee... Wael , you're fast !

OK , gimme some time, let me make one first ...
A new challenge of sorts for me.

I am planning as hard as possible how to make as many journals as possible with 4 sheets, but this time unlike previous "Black Ties", these new ones will see front and rear covers having symmetrical graphics.

So far, my preliminary findings are that the 4 sheets can yield :
- 2 A5 ;
- 2 A6 ;
- 1 A6 landscaped with leather spine like #28B "Letters"

I managed to finish one A6 journal. So as promised, here is what it looks like ...



Front cover and rear cover


The exposed spine stitches


Full spread, the graphics flow continuously from one cover to the next despite the disruption in the spine.


This is the first time I am using black flyleaves, but I think it has to bcos of the strong colors in the graphics.
The adjustable "anti drop-out " flap is added


I think it looks stunning, not subtle , but not loud either. biggrin.gif

This will be Journal #62 "Capetown"

I have been itching to do maps for a long time.
I found this recently. 12" x 12" paper printed with an old map of South Africa.
Can anyone tell what/when map is this ?



I haven't started making the journals yet.

But I am planning to make a set of 3 journals in the manner of "Partridges" done sometime back.

So the completed set would comprise :
1 x A5 size = 7 signatures, 112 pages; (USD$27)
1 x A6 size = 6 or 7 signatures , 96 or 112 pages; (USD$18 or $20)
1 x A7 mini size = 4 signatures, 64 pages (USD$13)

You pay $shipping.

I am offering as a set of 3 journals. I think they make a great family.
If you don't need all 3 , perhaps you can buy the set then gift either of them away.
( Any Capetown folks here in FPN ? biggrin.gif )

Disclaimer and notes :
1) I haven't started yet nor have planned when to start crafting them,
2) I can't confirm how long I will take to finish them when I start. At times it can be as fast(slow) as one night, and at times - weeks embarrassed_smile.gif (as explained before, I don't do this fulltime)
3) The map is interesting - it has little towns and cities labelled - probably in their old names? I am not sure. I have done some preliminary layouts, and I foresee some parts of the map will be hidden due to the foldover parts. (unless I come up with a totally different journal design. Ambitious, but it remains a remote possibility - for now) So if you happen to want a certain town to appear in your cover, I can't guarantee that . unsure.gif
4) You only pay when the journals are completed and are ready for shipping
5) If for some reason the payment doesnt fall thru even after ordering, the set will then be re-listed to be offered for sale again.
6) Since they are not made yet, you can let me know your preferences for things like :
- whether you don't want a ribbon pagemarker , or
- grey or vanilla or white writing paper ,
- pocket or no pocket , etc
We can work together to see if I can meet your requirements, within my ability of course.

Any takers ?

Usual rules apply, first "I want it" will get it. Whether via threadpost OR backchannel OR PM.

Thanks for looking.

Here are only some of the more closeup shots of the map...
