This is a hard cover journal bound in black leather with beautiful grain texture. I designed it to seem a precious book with ancient and mysterious aspect. Each cover features in the center an antique ornament with the portrait of a woman.
I chose the surrounding decoration to match its medieval look. It was made by hot tooling, each element at a time and painting with silver leather dye.
The book measures 7.5 x 5 inches (19 x 13 cm). It has 96 pages (192 sides) of artist quality Fabriano paper. The paper is beige, slightly textured, it was hand-torn and has 250 gsm , making for a thick paper, perfect for writing and sketching in any media, even watercolor.
The headbands are hand sewn by me from brown and black cotton thread. The end pages are made of marbled paper with blue, black and brown veins.
This book is an art object. I hope you will love it once you’ll meet it.
