I am simply in love with the beautiful mind and artistic soul of the great Leonardo Da Vinci.
This journal is inspired by one of his sketches, and I hand painted the leather in detail. No tools were used, it is a drawing made in the traditional way, line by line.
For this journal, I chose a lovely leather that has a beautiful patina and a nice texture.
The paper is hand torn so it has beautiful raw edges.The pages are an off-white and have a mottled look, resembling old pachment, 90 gsm thickness.
The journal is sewn in traditional longstitch technique and it closes with a leather ribbon that wraps around the journal to keep it tight.
