I finished the last bits of gluing yesterday. Yay. Kitty fell in love with one of them, so I handed them out around the family last night. That still leaves seven, which I photographed this morning.

These are made with traditional yuzen paper, except the purple and blue one, that's a heavier metallic art paper. The corners are covered with bookcloth in various colors, and the pages are an assortment of page-weight letter papers. They're all bound with either size 5 perle cotton or craft thread, which is a cheaper version about the same weight. The binding patterns are:

Top row, both noble binding. Lower row, left is tortoiseshell, right (the floral pattern) is hemp leaf.

These three have covers cut from tea boxes, same materials otherwise, all basic four-hole binding. Front:

Yes, the back cover on the TJ's chai one is upside down. I didn't notice until after it was too well stuck to peel off. It still works otherwise. I am, of course, keeping the tiger journal, but most of the rest will be given to the deserving. Oh, and the first four are about 4"x6", the other three are smaller because I was using the tops or sides of tea boxes, which limited the dimensions.
