This leather is special, having a very interesting surface, reminding me somewhat of a folded paper. Its cover is almost black (a very dark shade of brown). I gave it a patina with a red leather dye to enhance its unusual character. Each page was individually stained to give it the look of old books.
Each page is hand torn so they have beautiful distressed edges. It closes with a red leather ribbon. The pages are sewn onto the cover traditionally with medieval longstitch method, using strong thread.
It has 216 pages (counting both sides) and is 7.5 x 5.3 in (19×13 cm).
