I’m slowly turning my attention to Passover (now that Purim is practically in the bag) and one thing on my mind is how ugly my haggadah is. I use A Family Haggadah II by Shoshana Silberman which I love, but it’s not much to look at (from the outside at least). So, I’ve been gathering some inspiration on what I could do to it.
Gratitude Journal from Lulu the Baker
Classic papers with a simple sticker label make a stunning combination in these book covers. This definitely looks do-able.
Newsprint book covers from Unknown Source
Oooh…vintage-y. I like how the twine and wax seal could also be used as a bookmark.
Brown paper book covers by Mara Zepeda on Design Sponge
I love this white lettering on the brown paper. I’d put the lettering on the front since my haggadah barely has much of a spine, but I’m not confident enough about my calligraphic writing to do this one.
Book cover and bookmark by Twig & Thistle
This is the piece de resistance. A book mark is integrated into the cover and also does triple duty as a named placeholder. Go to their site for even more stunning images of this project.
So there are a lot of options to make an ugly haggadah beautiful. I suppose what I really need to do first is decide how to set the table…
