From this plain little brown booklet
Don't they look great!
I purchase a block of cover papers today and decided to spruce up some Hahnemuhle Travel Booklets, I love how they've come out. These little journals are what I gave my students to work with and I can't wait to show them how they look with a makeover next week.
The first two in the top picture are gifts; one for a friend's birthday and one for Brian Nelson. (His is the lined one) A while back I posted my very first dip pen sketches and commented that I found the nibs a little scratchy. Brian commented that he'd bought a package of nibs and offered to send me some as a gift...Just like that!
I think acts of kindness such as this are such a wonderful surprise. Sure to his word, the nibs arrived and are beautiful.
THANK YOU BRIAN!....doesn't sound like much over the internet, even if you shout it in capital letters, so I sketched it inside the first page of the booklet I will be sending as a thank you gift to Brian.
Hope you like it!
