This journal is made to order, please allow 5 working days for me to make it for you. Thank you!

This journal was created on the theme of the Wheel of the Year. The binding is made of natural brown leather, hand tooled and decorated with leather paints, and antiqued to have an old finish. The thematic is mysterious, an historic symbolic representation of time divided into annual cycles. It is believed to have a sacred meaning. The names of the cycles were stamped onto the leather in Gothic characters. The symbols on the inner circle represent the zodiac signs. I used for this book soft chromatic harmonies, earthy colors such as the light cream of the natural leather, the brown painted areas and a few orange and black accents in the tooled decoration. The design is very detailed and the entire binding was made to look like a medieval magic book.

The journal measures 10.2 x 7.3 inches (26×18.5 cm). It has 190 pages (380 sides) of blank writing paper. The paper has 125 g/m², is white, hand torn and works for ink and dry media. It is acid free and does not bleed through.

The endpages are made of marbled paper with yellow, black and ocher veins on a brown background.

This book is an art object. You can use it as a magic journal, a book of spells, a secret place to keep your thoughts… It will serve you for a long time!
