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

€345.00 EUR
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 Fabriano artist paper and has 114 pages (228 sides). The paper is warm white, 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. In case you want to use this as a photo album, the paper is chlorine-free so your photos will be safe from aging inside it. The edges of the book block have been given a brown color to look aged and thus fit the overall old 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!
