This journal is made of antiqued brown leather, high quality goat skin. It was designed to resemble a mysterious tome. The decoration was tooled and stamped into the leather, each element at the time and a patina was applied to fit the overall antique look of this book.
The theme of this book is Time and it’s cyclic passage, and its representation as a zodiac divided into twelve signs. The eye in the middle is The Eye of Providence, a symbol that represents the divinity watching over humanity.
The book measures 10.2 x 7.5 inches (26 x 19 cm). It has 114 pages (228 sides) of artist quality paper. This is warm white Fabriano paper, hand torn, thick (200 gsm) and will work for both writing and sketching in any media, including watercolor. The edges of the book were slightly toned to make the bookblock fit better the overall of the book.
The end pages are made of marbled paper, brown color with yellow, dark brown and black veins.
The headbands were hand sewn with orange and brown color threads.
This book is great to use as a daily journal, as a grimoire or as a magic book. It would also be perfect for an artist who would fill it up with ink drawings or perhaps tattoo sketches.
