The Second Lay Flat Journal cover

Now to decide how I am going to fill these covers. The papers are ver beautiful and very different. They are much sturdier than my usual covers being made from chipboard with a chipboard spine. I am gong to try and new way of "gluing the inserts onto the spine so that they will still allow the book to lay flat. Allowances for the gluing and folding are made with a bone folder and then the 1/4 inch glue allowance is adhered directly to the spine covering. A further 1/9 inch bone folder crease allows for easy turning. I have just purchased a scoreboard with 1/8 inch gradations so we will see how this goes.
