Large leather journal with lock and key, Medieval art book, one of a kind - Ancient Creed

€470.00 EUR
This is a very special, one of a kind large leather journal bound in genuine leather with a special antiqued finish. It's surface is filled with a network of fine cracks that give it an old worn aspect. The book was made to resemble a medieval tome, to take you back in time. In the center of the front cover, I fitted a very old escutcheon. The central panel is surrounded by silver lettering of a Roman quote: "vita non est vivere sed valere vita est" - "life is more than just being alive".

The book measures 9.5x13 inches (23.5x33 cm) and has 75 pages (150 sides) of beige Fabriano artist quality paper. This paper is thick (200 g/m²) and will work for both writing and sketching in any media, including watercolor. The pages were hand thorn for a rough medieval feel.

The end pages are made of beautiful decorative paper depicting old maps of the world. The headbands are hand sewn in two colors, with grey and black threads.

This journal is an art object. You can use it as a family book, a magic book or simply as a journal, either way, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
