I intended to cut up a large piece of leather and make a few books out of it, but the odd shape of the piece made it difficult. I didn't want to waste too much leather, so I decided to leave the exposed area uncovered and I inserted fancy paper as part of the signatures. After making the first book, the second and third were fun to make with different insert papers. I like hanging charms at the end of handmade cords as bookmarks.
You can see them better standing up. The stitching on the edges were hand stitched. I added a layer on top of the covers using leftover pieces of leather. I used every leftover bit of leather for these books. I enjoyed creating the set and feel very satisfied that I used a discarded piece of leather to create unique handmade books.
