Making Journals

Good enough.  Here are all three handmade journals.  The last one (top) still didn't come out perfectly, but one can't expect to be a master when preferring to be a jack of all trades.  Anyway, the point was to bind the pages so the papers stay together and that's what has been done.  Nice thing about Coptic binding is the pages open flat.

The Coptics were early Christians who lived in Egypt.  In 2005 my Egyptian friend Omneya and I looked for the Coptic Museum in Cairo, but even after asking several Tourist Police we were unsucessful.
