Large vintage leather journal, Reclaimed leather, Gold tooled decoration. The Old Book
This old looking journal is made of a worn piece of leather that came from vintage upholstery. It has a rich and dark brown red color and various marks that show its age and wear. It has the charm of a book with history. The decoration of the covers was kept to a minimum to allow the character and the passage through time of this piece to show. Contrasting, the spine was decorated with detailed gold tooling in the old style, but the gold was aged to suit the rest of this notebook.
This leather piece was large enough to allow for two copies to be bound with the same design, however each piece of vintage leather wears its own characteristics so please note when you purchase it that small differences can exist between the photos and the binding you will receive. Nevertheless both copies are equally beautiful!
The journal measures 7.5 x 8.3 inches (18.5 x 26 cm). It is filled with Fabriano artist paper, 114 pages (228 sides). The paper is beige, slightly textured, hand torn and thick, it has 200 g/m². It is acid free, perfect for writing and sketching in any media, even watercolor.
The endpapers are made of hand screened paper with brown and beige decorative patterns. The headbands were sewn by hand with brown and gold threads.
This journal has a lot of character. It would fit perfectly in your collection of antique books or your shabby chic interior. I hope you will enjoy!
