Mr. Sherlock for Sarah Anggia

This is my gift to another best friend. She really likes Sherlock Holmes. And back in the day, we were watching the first Sherlock Holmes movie together. Yes, I make this book a long long time ago (right after the first Sherlock Holmes movie released) It was just me (again) who always late to post here ;p

I inspired by the credit title of the movie. That was incredible! I really like the visualization. The motion and the graphic was so awesome. And my best friend, she ask me to make the book according to it. So, with some research here and there, here it is the result. May you enjoy it also! :D

Put some words in some page. You can write down your ideas here in the book! :)

The front-page, I use Rugos and paper-tape to add some details.

The details .. I use cotton fabric for the cover. It's a bit ochre for the color. And I also put some roses button with cream-colored ribbon sewn on the cover.

Enjoy, and see you on the next update!
