400 pages

I’ve been working on some 400page journals. They pose certain issues that don’t come up in other sizes of journal. The spine is much thicker than in other journals and the number of pages and signatures forced me into a funny set of stations across the spine. I’m usually very happy with an odd number of stations. The number of signatures, 20, forces me to use an even number. It being a square number (see kids Math IS important!) I can’t get it to work in an odd way. I need to play with this style and see what I like and don’t like. This may be the perfect number of pages to work with slots and angles.

The first 400 Page journal is listed here on eBay and I’ll have another up on etsy this afternoon.
