For the last few months I have been working at a new journal concept I call Wrap it Up. The idea sprang from nesting dolls. I collect dolls. While I have sold most of my collection I kept the funky ones. My nesting dolls were one of the ones that remains on my shelf. Always looking for a new way to make a journal I designed these journals to be light weight, portable and have sections that fit into one another.
The first incarnation came from wanting to use recycled book pages in a new way. From there I got into all the what ifs? The resulting ebook Wrap it Up: journals with style! was finished yesterday. Oh – I am not done with the what ifs? A sequel could be coming up. I am also working on a book on digital printing all sorts of surfaces.
Here you will see the table of contents and the introduction here along with a few pictures of what the journals look like with all their sections open and closed. Closed they all go into one another with each section getting larger as they fit inside of each other. It’s a plus that you can take just one section and carry it easily. There are plenty of instructions and ideas to create your own unique ideas!
The Kindle and Nook versions will be ready in the upcoming months. They have to be designed somewhat differently to flow to the smallest of devices that use the Kindle and Nook apps. Also there are tons of images in this book that need to be labeled correctly for this type of book.

I love this idea. It’s simple in the best sense of the word, and I can see how a viewer of such a book would be encouraged to look at the pages from every angle.
