"Białe noce" / "White Nights" junk journal

I entered the challenge by Nik the Booksmith with my all time favourite Fyodor Dostoyevsky and his short sentimental story "White Nights".
I printed a lot of old postcards, graphics, paintings from XIX century Sankt Petersburg where the story takes place. I decided the book to be a lifetime journal of the main character the Dreamer, so it also contains pictures form other places where he lived or travelled later, such as Moscow and Warsaw. There are a few portraits of his favourite writers, and his familly members (as I imagined them:) ), fragments of poems and quotes from the story itself, some floral accents, pieces of old fabrics, book covers being journalling cards, prints of authentic XIX century literary magazine etc.
It has got six signatures.  All papers are coffee and tea dyed.

The cover's made of cardboard with a mix media touch:) 

Hope you'd like it:)
