JB's 21st Birthday

JB's 21st birthday is approaching, so I made a birthday book. It's like a birthday card, except in the form of a hardcover book. I usually use thicker unlined (plain blank) notebooks or second-hand books, but for this project I used a sketchbook with only twelve pages. I always use hardcover books.

I collage first then add handwritten text or drawings. Books are customized according to receiver's interests and tastes.


An envelope glued to the page holds a separate letter,
which can be carried on its own encased in a smaller ricepaper envelope:






Mixed CD in a clear sleeve.

Lyrics all around.
