At Life In Analogue, we aim to breathe (beautiful) new life into unwanted objects. As such, this journal is a mix of vintage ephemera, upcycled book pages, writing paper, journal cards, old packaging, outdated encyclopaedias – and a good serving of washi tape.

With about 100 pages, this would make a gorgeous guest book, a special gift for a kiwi (or visitor), a travel journal, or a tranquil space for journalling.

Each page is considered both on its own, and as part of the whole, during the book-making process, making for interesting pages that each contribute to the overall flavour of the book. There is plenty of space for writing, drawing, or collage.

The cover is a recycled hardcover book, measuring approx. 20x14cm (~5.5″×8″), covered in cotton fabric, and handbound with twine.
