This is a special little journal made of brown leather recovered from a handbag which I bought long time ago in a flea market in Lisbon. It is thick and in very good condition in spite of its strong antiqued look and patina. The cover is decorated with two vintage metal rings which give it the look of a magic ancient little book filled with secrets.
The book measures 4 x 4.7 inches (10 x 12 cm). It has 150 pages (300 sides) of hand thorn, aged parchment paper. Acid free, 90 gsm weight, this paper beautifully combines colour and texture to give the perfect natural earthy background for your writing. It will hold any type of ink so it works great for calligraphy and writing in wet and dry media.
The spine was designed to resemble a real book cover; The raised bands were obtained with strips of leather underneath the one that covers it. It is decorated with leather paints. The end pages are made of French decorative paper, green color with an antique gold motif.
This little journal is an art object. You can use it as a notebook for quick notes or as a secret diary, either way, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
