Dia de Bloglandia
50 Books #7

Een feestelijk boek om goede herinneringen aan onze doden in te bewaren. Stofpapieren band, gedeeltelijk open rug, gekleurd garen en lint, fel gekleurde pagina's, getekende en geëmboste schedels. Dit is mijn eerste handgemaakte boek dat ik een naam heb gegeven: Boek van de Doden.
A festive book for saving the good memories of our dead.
Fabric paper cover, partly exposed spine, coloured thread and ribbon, bright coloured pages, heat embossed handdrawn skulls.This is my first handmade book that I named: Libro de Los Muertos.

Go visit all the Dia de Bloglandia blogs (click here) and remember your loved ones. I've read some very beautiful and thoughtful posts already.

  17. oh, this is the most amazing thing I've seen yet! I adore the theme, the colors and the way the spine is cut out to see the pages is simply stunning! I am in love and I think this is my favorite thing you've ever made!

  18. Your book is lovely! This is a wonderful idea and is a special way to remember loved ones!

  19. A "Book of the Dead" - isn't that some famous thing, like "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" or something like that? It's funny what triggers the ol' brain cells and it's lovely that I can now just google for the trivia that dances around on the edges of my brain instead of it driving me nuts in pre-computer days.

    Your book is lovely. The tiny paper skulls are very sweet.
