A new handmade book, lots of hours of work but the result was worth it :).
Lots of nice paper, leather, polymer clay, glass bead, acrylic paints...

In the same spirit I made fav.me/d7577yw

Let me know what you think about it :aww:

Edit 03/04/2014: Thank you so much for the daily deviation, I'm really exited about it :D

Thank you so much for all the favs, I'm sorry if I can't thank everyone personnaly but there are too many!  :hug:

Holy crap, this is amazing. I make my sketchbooks with cardboard, copy paper and duct tape(I love being that DIY redneck).

But this... yeah, I feel like mine was found in the trash can. But then again, I can have several made in a couple days. :)

Well I'm sure youre sketchbooks are far away from trash can and they serve there purpose very well. In this sort of book I would feel bad only to sketch, I would like a bigger project to go in it... I don't know yet :)
But here is a very good tutorial if you are interested in bookbinding and if you want to take youre sketchbook to a new level : lenoki.deviantart.com/art/BOOK…
Have fun ;)

thanks but i need much practice to make it good and i don't have that time ^^ thanks for the tutorial link
i actually have made a sketchbook in the past but its covers were white and i had no idea how to add art on them, it's a difficult medium that not nayone can do in the first go

I understand, it is time consuming and it's true that only practice can allow you to master the medium :)
Maybe one day you'll find the time!

That's really neat! What's it going to be used for? It looks like a journal. (:

Thank you very much! For the moment it has no purpose, but it could defenitly be used as a journal. For the moment it is just standing in my living room collecting dust, but I will use it someday :)

Is anyone going to draw or write in it? Here are a couple of 'books' you might not wish to examine too closely aegiandyad.deviantart.com/gall… .Hand crafted books, especially leather bound volumes, always put me in mind of grimoirs such as The Sacred Magic of Abra Melin the Mage [real, pdf. available to read here - hermetic.com/crowley/aa/abrame… ] and the Necronomicon of the mad Arab Al Hazred [fictional, thank goodness, but apparently also available as probably spurious or invented 'copies' en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necronom… ]

I do not plan to write or draw anything in it for the moment, I could, cause the paper is very good quality but I would want something special to go in it :) It defenetly won't be a necromicon (cause of the lack of human skin :D). Thanks for the comment :)

Human skin is vastly over rated. I'm wearing some myself and it looks awful.

Well I never tried to sell my books, this one was the first "serious" one I've ever made and it's on display in my living room :)
But I will consider taking commissions for those if anybody is interested,;)
