I've been collecting a variety of good papers that I'm anxious to use for art journaling ~ Fabriano 90# watercolor paper, two different types of paper by Canson, Rives BFK printmaking paper. The new journals will house largely, or exclusively, those papers. I still have a stack of Gelli offprints to use as pages as well, so they'll likely get thrown into the mix.
The two journals on the left have the widest spines, at about 1 inch; the other two, about 1/2 inch. I'll have two signatures each in the thinner books and possibly three in the bigger ones. I'm liking journals with fewer pages to fill...than, say, altering a thicker book and wanting to be finished with it way before using up all the pages. The reason I chose these books is because each is a good size for art journaling. The smallest is 7 x 10 inches.
I'll post closeups when each journal is bound. And I'll be posting page images as I'm working in them. I've still got half a dozen pages to fill in my current art journal, Little Gems. More images from that book to come.
