Journal with lock and key, Antique brown leather - "Meanings"

€320.00 EUR
This is a journal with lock and key, made of antiqued brown leather with beautiful rugged texture and color. Sober and classic, it was designed to resemble a medieval tome. 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.

The spine was designed to resemble that of an old book; The raised bands were obtained with strips of leather underneath the one that covers it. It is decorated in detail by blind tooling.

The book measures 10.2 x 7.3 inches (26 x 18.5 cm). It is filled with writing paper and has 190 pages (380 sides). The paper has 120 g/m², is white, blank, hand torn and works for ink and dry media. It is acid free and does not bleed through. The edges of the book block were tones brown to better fit the overall aged look of this book.

The end pages are made of marbled paper with brown, red, yellow and black veins. The headbands are hand sewn by me from beige and black cotton thread.

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