This journal is made to order, please allow 5 working days for me to make it for you.
This book is made of black leather, dyed and antiqued by hand. It was designed to resemble a medieval tome. 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 decoration is done by hot stamping with silver foil, each small element at a time .
The end pages are made of beautiful hand marbled paper with silver veins on a black background. The headbands are hand sewn by me from black and grey cotton thread.
The book measures 10.2 x 7.3 inches (26 x 18.5 cm). It is filled with white, blank writing paper and has 190 pages (380 sides). The paper has a thickness of 125 g/m² and works for ink and dry media. It is acid free and does not bleed through. The pages were hand-torn and the edges toned in light brown to make the book block fit better the overall antique look of this book.
This journal is an art object. You can use it as a magic book, a grimoire or a book of shadows, or simply as a secret journal, either way, you will love it once you’ll meet it.
