I got given a booklet in Austria by an Wall Instrument Sculpture Artist from America who I can’t remember the name of (I have a funky picture of us with top notch glasses on though).
This booklet was made out of a Post card of Wien. She described it to be a note book, cook book or whatever book.
I’ve never been much of a diary writer (recapping on my day seemed so backwards) but I started to scribble random thoughts and notes into this Booklet. And made another one myself once the first was full. Its turned out to be a fantastic micro diary, and bit of a twitter micro blog in a book, and the best thing about having it made out of a post card is when you’re travelling and you update it, it shows a story of where you’ve been. Much better then writing in a post card and sending it off to never be seen again.
Below is some instructions on how to make one.
1: Buy a Post Card
2: Find some scrape blank paper. (You know the paper the printer pops out with one useless line on it.)
3: Cut the paper up into rectangles to fit nicely into the Post Card. 5-6 pieces of paper are enough. Fold paper in half with post card surrounding it.
4: Find a needle and thread.
5: Sew the paper through the middle to the postcard to create a booklet.
6: Bobs your uncle. Your finished. Start Writing in it or Drawing or using as emergency tee pee paper
