This hardcover journal is made from a gorgeous piece of leather with a rich orange brown color and the appearance of aged leather, showing the passage of time. I wanted this notebook to be the perfect resource for the artist or the writer who will use it in that moment the inspiration strikes, even on the go, toss it in their bag and fill it with sketches and stories. The book measures 5.7 x 8.3 inches (14.5 x 21 cm). It has 102 pages (204 sides) of artist quality Fabriano paper. The paper is light beige, slightly textured, it was hand thorn and has 250 gsm , making it a thick paper, perfect for writing and sketching in any media, even watercolor. The endpages are made of marbled paper with red, black and brown veins and golden accents. The headbands were hand-sewn from beige and black cotton thread. I hope you will enjoy your journal!
