Create Expressive Books from Salvaged Treasures

As any creative mind knows, things aren't always what they seem. Rusty doorknobs, cardboard containers and plastic packaging may seem like trash to some, but in The Elemental Journal, they are transformed into expressive, artful books that are equal parts journal and assemblage. Craft these journals to hold your secrets or express your inner thoughts, and discover new ways to use wood, paper, fabric, plastic and metal in your art.

Peek inside The Elemental Journal and you will find . . .

  • 15 step-by-step journal projects made from unusual materials and found objects, from tree bark to dismantled photo albums to tin boxes.
  • Tips for seeking out materials for your journals in flea markets, garage sales, and in your own attic or trash can.
  • Inspiring gallery projects from 9 contributing artists, including Susan Tuttle, Jen Osborn and Jill Berry.
  • One artist's trash is another's treasure. Discover yours with The Elemental Journal.

    Ideas Outside of the Box for Book Artists Review by Tonia

    Book artists and art journalers alike will find not only thought-provoking prompts for making books with personal meaning, the gorgeous photography in this book speaks volumes. There are still several projects I wish to try and I love that the materials are simple and easy to find.
