This is a miniature journal, made in the exact same technique as my other books but it is so small that will fit in your palm. I created it as an art object more than a functional journal, but this little book will still be able to enclose your ideas, secrets and thoughts…
The leather I used for the covers is authentic and old, provenient from an old purse I found in a flea market years ago. The spine was designed to closely resemble that of a real cover, made in the traditional technique and covered with brown leather. The raised bands were obtained with other strips of leather underneath and then painted with leather paints.
The covers are orange brown color. They preserve the original leather state showing a good degree of wear and patina from the age. The front cover is decorated by a tiny antique key. The book measures 2.8 x 3.2 inches (7×8 cm). It has 120 pages (240 sides) of hand thorn, aged parchment paper. Acid free, 90 gsm weight, this paper beautifully combines color 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.
Whether you will really use this little journal or keep it as an art object, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
