I love to make from new materials something that looks all weathered and vintage, inside and out. This leather is special, having a subtle crackle like distressed look.
Each page was stained to give it the look of the paper in old books. Each page is hand torn so they have beautiful distressed edges. It closes with a black leather strap that wraps around it to keep it closed. The pages are sewn onto the cover traditionally with medieval longstitch method, using strong thread.
It has 252 pages (counting both sides), 120 gsm paper, and is 7.5 x 5.3 in (19×13 cm). The key doesn’t interfere with the writing as it is mounted on the third cover. The journal lays flat on the table.
