Second Chance Books

San Francisco Center for the Book

An upcycled daybook by instructor Juliayn Coleman

Plan to take part in SFCB’s Upcycled Journal workshop! This one is a perennial favorite, and the perfect way to lighten up an old box of books. Join instructor Juliayn Coleman in disassembling one and turning that “I really shouldn’t throw it away” book into an “I never leave home without it” journal.

In this conservation-focused workshop, students will be using old children’s books as their starting points. They’ll disassemble the old hardcover book, leaving its signatures mostly intact, and interleave the signatures with blank journal paper.

Juliayn,who crafts and restores books at her studio in San Francisco,  is one of our long-time instructors.
