Journal Cover

DESCRIPTION: Joseph Lee Robinson hand bound his journal using the cardboard top of a box which had contained Martha Washington Genuine Turkey Red H’dk’fs. He also used the bottom of this box and then bound the whole journal together with a plaid cloth for the back, or spine, of the book. This cover is interesting and has been preserved with the original pages of the journal.

The journal is beautifully handwritten and reasonably legible. J.L.R. arranged it in sections according to dates selected by himself. The pages, about 71- by 12 inches in size, are colored with age with edges a bit frayed, due to considerable handling by members of the family and some words are missing on page bottoms.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers|
