Congratulations to MyHandboundBooks!

The wonderfully apt and whimsical In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb - recycled journal by MyHandboundBooks won the March 'In like a lion, out like a lamb' challenge! Using all recycled or repurposed materials she created a one of a kind journal featuring a front cover showing the Lion, who had a "green and yellow tie on" and a back covers shows the farmer's boy and his "master's lambs." The pages in this journal are all "found" papers saved from the recycling bin including blank and lined paper from discarded notebooks, used business envelopes, posters, brochures, covers from old sketchbooks, misprints from the computer printer and photocopier, outdated calendar pages, tyvek envelopes, etc.

Book size is about 6¼" x 4¼" and 1" thick (16cm x 10.5cm x 2.5cm).

The journal is handbound with an exposed spine. The sewing is a blanket stitch, sewn with green linen thread. There are 224 pages (when you count both sides of each sheet).
