Handbound hardback guestbook or sketchbook
Sized 19 x 22 x 2 cm

Covered with natural white Italian linen-cotton bookcloth and woven Mexican amate bark paper. Headbands sewn with coffee dyed, off-white linen thread. Approx. 140 pages of gray-brown text weight recycled paper inside. The paper works beautifully with fineliners, pens, pencils and all dry media, and some fountain pen too.

This is a larger and thus more versatile version of my Charybdis series sketchbooks. I have made it with special occasions in mind. Its uses are many, and it would make a lovely guestbook for wedding or for the home. For the drawing and writing oriented it can work as a sketchbook and journal as well.

Background lore;
The mythical Charybdis Fig Tree was situated above the whirlpool of Charybdis in the Strait of Messina, which connects Tyrrhenian Sea with the Ionian Sea in the central Mediterranean. Little is known of the tree itself, but much more about its sea monster called Charybdis, which was later recognised as a whirlpool caused by meeting currents.

Professional bookbinder quality, made in Finland.
