Gallery 5

"I love my journals and am about to start my 40th book," writes Lesley, who sent us this picture of a Michael Roger journal that she decorated.

What a charming book! Lesley did a great job of customizing her product. Every journal owner fills out the inside of his or her book -- but decorating the cover is also an option, and it's a terrific choice for people who want their book to express an aspect of their personality that plain red cloth (or whatever your cover material happens to be) just can't convey. Thanks, Lesley!

Mike Stilkey -- Book Art

Check out the book art of Mike Stilkey. He's an LA based artist whose brush strokes can be seen on old book covers and vintage vinyl alike (one in the same when it comes to our vintage LP books!).

Very cool stuff.
