Whenever I come across a beautiful vintage/antique book that is in need of rescue, I try to use every part of that title! The book journals are a customer favorite, but I also keep the spines to make bookmarks (backed on vintage wallpaper), AND the images from the pages themselves! Each image is laminated and adhered to a block of wood and fitted with a ribbon hanger. They are cute by themselves in a little nook, or as a grouping!
The image on this book block came from a very old children's book of poetry (poem by John Greenleaf Whittier). The pumpkin coach at the bottom is just adorable! This book block measures 7' x 9'.
