Finished Mood Book Flip Through

I started making mood books some time ago from the pages of magazines I didn’t have room to keep, but I couldn’t quite let go of. Each one starts with sorting the pages in themes, folding and pre-punching the holes and binding them with a Coptic stitch binding. Each page is then decorated from top to bottom. Only a peak of the original page may be seen here or there, but you’d have to look pretty hard.

Finishing one is always a thrill. To flip through and see how every page works together as part of the whole is surprising and delightful for me. Here is a video of the flip through of a mood book I just finished. I hope you enjoy seeing it.
