Handmade Disney Autograph Books

July 13, 2010

As many people are lovers of books I thought they might appreciate this.

I dabble in woodworking, mostly making toys for the kids, boxes, shelves and other not-so-complex stuff. I find woodworking very relaxing, it helps me gather my thoughts, calm down and it’s time away from a “screen” (TV, computer monitor, cell phone).

In 2009 we took our kids to Disney. We wanted to take our daughter (4.5) there before the magic disappears.

I made them autograph books made of wood and it occurred to me that many bibliophiles might appreciate it.

I was going for a “rough” look, something similar to prelims in animation or sketches in comic book art.

is is just a joke of our daughter’s misunderstanding of the lyrics

    These are so beautiful! You're very talented 🙂 And your kids are very lucky! Did they end up getting the autographs they were after?

    Yes, we got several autographs. Later when we came home we printed the pictures with the characters signing the books and glued them on the opposite page.
