The guestbook I made for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary reception. Softcover (Strathmore ridged card stock), laminated mulberry endpapers, red ribbon pamphlet-stitch sewing, 90-pound watercolor paper pages (torn), printed on an inkjet printer. Throughout, it's photo on the left, signing lines on the right.

The book needed to be lightweight enough and non-awkward enough for someone with severe arthritis everywhere to be able to handle it easily.

I had planned to slip ribbons through the folds of the cover to tie the opening together. But in the end, I just left the flaps to be used to fold over and protect the ends.
