project 100+ bindings: project 4

After a very long break.. the time has come for..
It's not perfectly like from the 100+ bindings book. There was also shown how to make the cover, but I decided to make a cover from an old, small book with a nice little drawing on the front cover.
I always wanted a notebook which looks like a book!
It's quite small. The measurments:
width - 9cm
height - 14,5cm
depth - 3cm

And it has just a bit olden pages - I didn't want it very thick :)
Isn't this 'drawing' interesting?
And the tittle of the book. It quite fits a notebook. The tittle is: General Overhaul /or/ Major Repairs. Quite good tittle for a journal, art journal or something like that, isn't it?
The pages are from my very old notebook. It wasn't used for ages (few years) so I decided to use the pages for something usefull;p
You probably didn't notice, but the pages are a bit purple and there are gentle purple flowers. And it's my first notebook with checkered pages!!
I bought this book few months ago in an antiquarian bookshop - just because of the cover!! I knew I will do something out of it one day!
And as usually my question: Do you like it?! :d

P.S. This book is participating in Art Piaskownica's game here:

Podoba się bardzo ;-). Muszę nauczyć się robić takie notesy. U mnie wszelkie kartki zapisują się bardzo szybko. Rysunkami, wzorami chemicznymi i całymi reakcjami, opowiadaniami, wierszami, piosenkami. Jestem nieogarniętym duchem i podziwiam absolutnie podziwiam za dar ogarniania cudownego materiału jakim jest papier.
