This is a very special, one of a kind leather journal. It is very large in size and filled with many pages of high quality artist paper, so you can use it as a sketchbook, guest book or even a photo album. The cover is made of dark blue leather and depicts the artwork of a surrealistic composition created using metal pieces such as wheels and pins to suggest a time travel machine. It’s mechanical look and metallic accents make it a wonderful piece of steampunk art. The journal can be used as a diary, as it is closing with a functional lock and key which adds a plus of mystery to the overall. It measures 14.5 x 11 inches (37 x 27.5 cm) and it has 168 pages (336 sides) of Fabriano artist quality paper, very thick (200 gsm) and with a beautiful texture. The paper is warm white and the edges of the book block were toned to give a plus of antique look to this book. This paper is acid free and will take on great any media, even watercolor. Other features include hand sewn headbands from black and grey cotton treads and marbled endpages with blue, golden, red and grey veins. *Please note, this book weights ~11 pounds (5 kilos). This is a special book filled with magic. I hope it will make a statement in your home. It was made to last forever.
