This book is made from a Prince and the Revolution "Purple Rain" record cover. The front and back covers are made with the front and back record covers, with the interior covers featuring the artwork from the record sleeve (which contains the lyrics.) The book is made with 25 pages of premium Strathmore Bristol paper, ideal for sketching, drawing, pen and ink, and heavy enough to support plenty of photos to be used as a photo album. The fly- and end-papers are made with a deep violet silk lace paper and lavender pearlescent paper. The edges are finished with purple duct tape. The book is sewn using an eight needle Greek method with purple waxed Irish linen thread. This book is for sale on my etsy site.
