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."
