I got some gorgeous Japanese silk remnants from one of my favorite Etsy shops, FromJapanWithLove. I backed the silk with Japanese Mulberry paper so I could use it as book cloth and decided to make some photo albums. The remnants weren't very big so these albums aren't very big, one standard 3.5 x 5in photograph will fit on each page. The red one is my favorite, the red and cream silk is amazing (and now available in my Etsy shop).
The brown album is actually done with a Pashmina-Silk fabric that I got from SouthamptonCreations. (These two Etsy sellers are actully mother and daughter, which i only came to know afterwards; a fun coincidence.)
I haven't made a photo album for a long time; these small albums that I finished tonight are the first of this kind that I've made in, um...maybe 4 years. When I took my very first bookbinding course, we made a photo album and I was so struck by my ability to make something so widely practical, that I made many many many. I made several for myself (which I just gathered together for the photograph below), and I made several to give as gifts to everyone I knew, and I kept it going until people were tired of seeing them. And now that I've looked at all these albums that I made for myself...I want to make new ones for myself...I could do them so much better now! Great, another project on my "to do" list.
