Alchemic leather journal, Brown and turquoise leather, Pentagram decoration - Ouroboros

€310.00 EUR
This journal is made to order, please allow 5 working days for me to complete it. Thank you!

This journal is bound in natural leather which was hand painted and aged with patina to achieve an antique look. The central panels are an old blue green, turquoise color, while the surrounding panels are orange ocher. The decoration was stamped and blind tooled onto the leather, each element at a time. I wanted to give this book a magic feeling, simple, occult, completed by an ancient feel of a cherished worn book. The symbols stamped on the cover are the Ouroboros, the serpent eating its own tale, which symbolizes cyclicality, the eternal return, and the Pentagram, which has been given many symbolic meanings during history, however here I used it in relation with the universe, symbolizing the five elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.

The book measures 10.2 x 7.3 inches (26 x 18.5 cm). It is filled with white, blank writing paper and has 190 pages (380 sides). The paper has a thickness of 125 g/m² and works for ink and dry media. It is acid free and does not bleed through. The pages were hand-torn and the edges toned in light brown to make the book block fit better the overall antique look of this book.

The book is closing with a lock and key which not only is functional but adds to the mysterious and occult look of this book.

This is one of a kind piece of artwork. It can make a beautiful magic journal or book of spells. I hope you will enjoy!
