Antiqued Miniature Book / Vintage Leather Journal with gold tooled decoration
This miniature leather journal is made in the exact same technique as my larger journals only this one is so small that will fit in your palm. I created it as an art object more than a functional journal, but this little book will still be able to enclose your ideas, secrets and thoughts…
It is made of antiqued natural brown leather with gold tooled decoration. It has a worn look. The spine was designed to resemble that of an old book made in the traditional technique. The raised bands were obtained with other strips of leather underneath and were painted with gold leather paint.
This miniature book measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches (6.5x7.5 cm). It has 120 pages (240 sides) of hand thorn, aged parchment paper. Acid free, 90 gsm weight, this paper beautifully combines color and texture to give the perfect natural earthy background for your writing. It will hold any type of ink so it works great for calligraphy and writing in wet and dry media. The endpages are made of marbled paper.
This tiny book is an art object. Whether you will really use it as a journal or keep it as a decorative piece, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
*Please note: There are three very similar little books that were made with the same piece of leather, however due to the irregular character of the vintage leather no little book is identical with another. Please keep in mind when purchasing that the photos are illustrative.
