Collecting the Mail: Handmade books

I stumbled onto this great blog where the bookbinder saved all of her junk mail envelopes to use as pages of very unique journals. What an obvious and super fun idea for a book. She started with stacks (signatures) of cut open junk mail envelopes.

And ended up with these beauties:

All of the journals have envelopes for pages with the security patterns, plastic windows and stamps left in tact. I can’t wait to make my own. Thanks Rhonda from Canada 🙂Rhonda’s has great ideas for all kinds of books. Check out more of her work and blog here.

Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

Massive outdoor sculpture, larger than life wall paintings and psychedelic video installations are featured at Bangkok’s Art and Culture Centre this month by some insane artists. If you’re in the area it’s definitely worth stopping by. Plus admission is free! Located on the corner of Pathumwan Intersection, facing the MBK and Siam Discovery Centres.
