Humanities students got to make their own journals in class. The process began as they selected sections of leather, folded paper to size, marked the spaces and punctured the holes, dyed the leather, added stamps or embellished designs in the leather, then tied in the pages of the journal with sturdy waxed thread. The whole process was completed with a buckle, strap, or fastener to complete the individualized journal-making process.
