Journal With Me: Recycling Old Manga!

A few days ago, I found this extremely old Code Geass anthology. It was pretty beaten up since it lived its past life as a library book and has a bunch of library stickers and markings on it, not to mention wear and tear from passing through different hands and being dropped in the book drops over and over. I bought it for a few bucks, and since it’s so easy to get online it’s pretty much unsellable! I couldn’t think of another use for it since I didn’t think I’d be reading it again (I still love Code Geass, but just look at the cover, haha), but then it came to me that I could use it to spice up the pages of my journal, especially on days where I don’t have much else going on.

For this instance, I turned a funny set of panels into a page that accurately conveys how I feel about Mondays. I plan to use as much of the book as I can before properly recycling it!

For what it’s worth, I don’t advice using this technique on books that can be donated or sold and re-enjoyed. This book had reached the end of its road in my eyes, but it’s probably the only book I have that would qualify as such. Therefore, I’m careful to call this “recycling” instead of “upcycling”… I personally am not of the strong belief that books can be upcycled. What’s more valuable than a book in its purest form?

Anyway, here’s the video!
