My bulbs are emerging from the earth and so, in anticipation for the colours of spring, I have created these homemade books for journaling or gardening notes.
This style is dos-à-dos binding (from the French meaning “back-to-back). It is a technique where, in this case, three separate books share the same cover. I love this design because it has different sections to organize writing.
The dos-à-dos format dates back at least to the 16th century, though they were most common in England in the first half of the 17th century.
I love the button detail, so much fun to create!
