While waiting for my book covers to dry in the press (see previous post), I finished my second baseball-themed journal / notebook. This one is called "Pop Fly":
Its covers are made from a well-worn, vintage Carlton Fisk catcher's mitt, and a bit of reclaimed bison leather. On the first page is a reproduction of an 1888 baseball card with a photo of Monte Ward of the New York Giants. I loved this little photo! In it, Monte Ward is clearly in a photography studio, manfully reenacting a slide into home base.
This journal is residing on the shelves of my Etsy store.
