In recent years, the centuries-old craft of making handmade books and transforming them into personal journals has somehow reemerged somewhat unexpectedly. This second book in AARP's popular Live & Learn series teaches even new crafters how to create your own signature book. Real Life Journals encompass every step; from choosing a bookbinding (an inside front cover inserts lays out your options) to selecting cover and layout designs. Journal impresario Gwen Diehn shows the way with numerous tips and scores of photos of sample pages from a whole rainbow of individual projects. A starter kit for any reflective baby boomer.
