Ethiopian Appalachian Journals


While at JournalFest, Kirry (my 16 year old daughter) and I took the class "Ethiopian Appalachian Journals" by Daniel Essig. And what a wonderful class it was! Admittedly, I am just mildly annoyed that Kirry's book came out far better than mine. After all, she has never so much as glued 2 pieces of paper together and here she is a book binding wizard! I have begun journaling in my book (the walnut one), which is proving to be quite a challenge due to it's tiny size of 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" and 1 1/2" thick. Kirry's book requires no further embellishment or journaling, it is a work of Art as is.

The picture makes them look much larger. No wonder you will have trouble journaling in yours. I do love the way they turned out..chunky and sort of mysterious looking.

Beautiful books! What a wonderful experience to share with your daughter! I know what you mean about our children doing better than us! lol...
