Handbound flexible leather journal
Sized 15 x 11 x 2,5 cm (A6)
Covered with upcycled black leather, supple to touch but also very hard-wearing - as are all the other elements in this book.
Pages sewn in with thick, dark grey linen thread in a variation of the historical longstitch technique, with simple flyleaves of patterned paper in matching greys. The cover flap is decorated with a patinated brass plate and additional stitching in waxed, black linen thread. The flap can be closed on a robust flax paper button with a hand-braided cord.
Approx. 160 pages of gray-brown recycled paper inside, deckled edges. Works beautifully with pens, pencils and all dry media, perhaps some acrylics and ink too! Because of the soft cover and the style of the binding, this book opens quite flat which makes it easy to write and draw in. Only one book in these exact materials and colourway has been made. Signed on the last page.
