My wife and I love Doctor Who, so for this Christmas I wanted to do something slightly different for her. River Song is one of our favorite characters (along with Captain Jack) so I wanted to make River’s famous blue book.
Book cover was made from cardboard bound with faux leather and painted with several layers of blues to build up the highlights.
Pages are simply stained with coffee to age them. Images and text were a combination of images printed and worked into with ink, paint and pencil and straight up drawings done by hand.
The cover could use a little more work but it turned out pretty well and my wife loved it (combined it with a Tardis Key) which is the important thing.
