Leather Handbound Journal with Vintage Style Pages, “Wabi-Sabi Book”


Out of stock



Wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. ~ Wikipedia This journal is filled with hand stained paper, using a mix of coffee and tea to give it this special vintage color and look. The cover is made of high quality Italian leather that I’ve tortured to give it this unique distressed appearance. The book is sewn using the traditional long stitch technique using strong thread. It closes with a leather belt and a strap. You can offer it as a gift for a dear friend or you can keep it for yourself, to treasure your dreams and memories. Great as a poetry book or as a dreamer creative place. It has a lot of pages – 216, counting both sides. Each page has it’s own poetry and beauty. You can unleash your inspiration!
