This is a little blank book / journal measuring 3 x 3.7 inches (8 x 9.5 cm). I was created as an art object with functional purpose and will be a great art piece to carry with you everywhere and jot down your ideas and thoughts. If you are a book lover and like miniatures and small artworks this would make a great addition to your collection.
The leather I used for the covers is authentic and really old, repurposed from an old handbag that I bought in a flea market in Lisbon some years ago. The spine was designed to closely resemble that of an old book, made in the traditional technique and covered with black leather. The raised bands were obtained with other strips of leather underneath and then painted with leather paints.
The book has a total of 120 pages (240 sides) of antiqued paper that resembles parchment. The paper will take on well both ink and dry media.
This little journal is an art object, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
