Below is a page from a book I put together that was mostly made of fabrics, I mentioned it at the beginning of the project, about my childhood memories. I stitched into the text I had written and used the material in other ways...It gives work and a 'collection' a more personal feel.

Paper Craft and OR Fabrics.
Along with origami and paper craft within books and although the general approach to book making is paper. I have thought about fabric journals. The idea of using fabrics to communicate something, I think is a very good idea, especially if your subject is quite personal. The hand stitch and crafted approach brings you closer to your audience and it gives them something to look closely at, as well as something to touch...
