This miniature journal is made of beautiful vintage leather provenient from an old Portuguese bag. It is small, it will fit in any bag, in any pocket, but it filled with many pages for you to write down your ideas and thoughts.
It’s ideal for someone who wants to own a piece of art that is functional at the same time. The leather carried the marks of time and wear. It has beautiful marks that I incorporated into the design to show its authenticity. The spine was designed to closely resemble that of a real cover, made in the traditional technique and covered with black leather.
The raised bands were obtained with other strips of leather underneath and then painted with leather paints. The front cover is embellished with an antiqued key with a peculiar shape. 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.
I hope you will love this little book once you’ll meet it.
