This journal is made to order, please allow 5 working days for it to be ready. Thank you!
This book is the bold version of my traditional leather journal with lock and key. It was designed using brighter and more vivid colors in a rich chromatic harmony based on colors green and blue, but still to resemble a medieval tome from ancient times. The metal brads placed in the corners and the lock have a patina to fit the overall antique look of this book. The brads will allow it to lay flat when opened but the surface of the covers will never enter in contact with the table and thus will protect the decoration from scratching. I saw this system used in old books and I just loved it.
The journal measures 10.2 x 7.3 inches (26 x 18.5 cm). You can order this book to be filled with artist quality paper OR with writing paper. In both cases the edges will be toned in light brown to make the book block fit better the overall antique look of this book.
The end pages are made of beautiful dark blue paper. The headbands are hand sewn from blue and yellow thread.
This journal is an art object. You can use it as a family book or as a secret journal, even as sketchbook or a photo album due to its heavy weight paper, either way, you will love it once you’ll meet it.
