My Special MADE: Long Books!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and hello everyone,

I'm glad that I can finally blog about these two, my favorite long books!

“Long books, when read, are usually overpraised,
because the reader wishes to convince others and himself
that he has not wasted his time.” 
~ E.M. Forster, Aspects of the Novel ~

The one on the left is covered with black-brown-letter paper and the other one is covered with blue-white polkadot fabric. The books are special because both books have different covers on front and back, We mix & match patterns for the book covers and that was one of the best, exciting process! Special stuffs are totally for special MADE.

It's PAPER versus FABRIC this time >_<

I used kettle stitching with butterfly knot for both books and they have a very nice stud-leather as closure! Despite of using cotton tape for the stitch, I used the leather piece of same colors instead.

I enjoy taking photos outdoors, and take advantage on beauty of nature, but below are some of the indoor pictures that I could share with all of you.

The books are really tall, aren't they?

I'm sharing some of my early related posts that you may find on my Instagram and FB page. You may LIKE & FOLLOW me to get updated, as I always use both sites as the main platforms to announce, promote things and updates!

Can you spot the pencil cases next to the books? YEAH, I made it too! (I'll blog about that later, yeehoo!) Oh, by the way, I cut the leather piece to a nice size and shape so that when you close the book and 'seal' it, it leaves a little space to fit your favorite pen ♥

That's all for now. I hope you enjoy and have a blissful day!
Thank you.
