Looks good, mate. :thumbsup My only suggestions are to distress the cover to give it a more used look and to ditch the photocopied/scanned(?) pages because it looks as if it copied parts of the distressing too. Other than that, your hand-drawn pages look good and I like your handwriting, as it makes the diary more personal to you. Kudos! :)

Thanks,

If I have the time, I'll look into how to give the cover a more used look.

Most of the pages, I found on a website, can't remember the name.

And I printed them on some old style paper I found in the art-shop.

The handwriting, isn't exactly mine :confused,

I recreated the handwriting of Henry Jones with a special
program that allows you to make your own font,
then typed the whole text in and printed it.

Better than what I could do!
Did you try using coffee to stain the pages? I think that's the popular method to get that aged look.
Ditto on the cover, maybe a magic eraser will dull down the color as well.
Other than that, can't say much more since you are doing what this forum is all about - making prop replicas with passion!

I'll try it soon, but I don't want to mess up the diary.

I'll be extra careful. :confused

The book looks great!
Just one thing that popped into my mind-if it was Indy's father who mailed the book to him, why was it addressed for Prof. Indiana Jones, rather than to Henry Jones Jr.?
