Good news! I received notification that my large 'Book of Memories' wedding guestbook will be in the Spring issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine - out on Feb. 28th! I'm so excited to see it! :)
At 9" high and 12" wide, the Book of Memories is the largest book that I make. There are 264 handtorn pages (front & back) of off-white 50lb. drawing paper. The binding is hand-stitched, as all my books are, in a medieval style binding - it's very sturdy and allows the book to open flat. As for the leather, while I generally make my journals in earth tones, which I feel best expresses the 'tone' of my work, the guestbook that was requested for the wedding featured in the magazine was in black pebble-grain. This was to match the colour scheme of the wedding.
I've never read one of Martha's wedding magazines before, but I will be sent a copy that my guestbook is featured in. I'm really looking forward to seeing it!
Someone suggested I start working on a bunch of the guestbooks, due to the fact that demand will definitely rise once this magazine hits the stands. (Seeing as I don't have another one yet in stock, I guess I better get crackin'!)
