Blue Leather Journal with Lock and Key, "Celtic Legends"
This journal is made of beautiful blue leather and has an antiqued lock and key. It was designed using the bright, vivid blue color in a simple chromatic harmony, combined with the black painted decoration representing a Celtic Knot, and the silver metal hardware, simplicity that resembles that of ancient Celtic civilization. The metal brads placed in the corners and the lock have a patina to fit the overall antique look of this book. The brads will allow it to lay flat when opened but the surface of the covers will never enter in contact with the table and thus will protect the decoration from scratching. This system was used in medieval books.
This book measures 6.5 x 8.7 inches (16.5 x 22 cm) and has a total of 170 pages (340 sides) of writing paper. The paper is white, has 125 g/m² and is perfect for writing and sketching in ink and dry media. The edges were toned brown for a better fit with the antique look of the book.
The end pages are made of beautiful hand marbled paper, blue with white veins. The headbands are hand sewn by me from grey and black colored threads.
