With Each Passing Day, Memories Fade Book

Sunday, September 25th, 2022

I am using the quote on a wallpiece in progress. Bought heavy cardstock for book covers. This little book was my first attempt. The cardstock is 110 lb. Really too thin for when I start making larger books. My plan is to use my favorite old studio shirts, rips and all, as book cloth.

Pretty sure the next code I use, will be based on dots and dashes of Morse Code. I would like to fill the pages with text.

This code is nice because it has one symbol for each letter. In Morse there are dots, dashes, and combinations of one to four for each letter. Numbers contain five, and punctuation six.

Update
Didn’t like that the inside strips were glued. Stitching is a better idea.
