I mention quite often that I had my favourite fanfiction, Between Sea and Shore by steadfast-bright-star on ff.net aka the-female-macaroni on tumblr, printed as a book so I can read it everywhere anytime without having to squint at a too bright phone screen at midnight while on vacation. I was asked to post some pictures by some people, and here they are. The actual book is bound in blue cardboard (as seen on the last picture with the description), but I made a cover from beige ‘elephant skin’ paper, the writing is done by me. I’m going to illustrate the book by hand. Rosie Elizabeth is the author’s real name, I blurred our last names since we don’t want them on the internet. Please excuse the low picture quality.
My Journal 3 replica is almost finished! It’s handbound and the hand and the corners are made of thin brass. The corners are a little different from the original since I wanted them to look more like actual book corners. Now I just have to add some tears in the cover and fill in the rest of the pages
(also included in this photoset are some really shitty webcam pics featuring some of the finished pages in the book)
