Now,Voyager, sail thou forth

 After much thinking and pondering and a bit of mumbling, the vintage passport wallet I showed you in my last post has been transformed into a journal that I am really quite in love with. I added a bit of a wonderfully worn reclaimed leather to create the spine, and some hand-marbled end papers I discovered a while back in the smallest imaginable book shop on the Rialto bridge in Venice, Italy. Here is the finished book:


I named this journal "Now, Voyager, sail thou forth"
The title comes from a Walt Whitman poem:

"The untold want, by life and land ne'er granted,
Now, Voyager, sail thou forth to seek and find."


  1. Oh my gosh..... it's wonderful! I'd love to touch it and smell it and flip some pages.

  2. Thanks, Carole. It does have that "antique store" smell, which I love.
