Green leather journal with tooled floral decoration and gold accents . Romantic Journey
This romantic journal is bound in leather varying from green to brownish color with a beautiful antique finish. I decorated the cover with botanical leaf motifs to give it a romantic precious look, and to look old as if it would belong to another era in time. The decoration was made with heated brass tools, each small element at a time. The golden corners and spine were given a textured patina to appear as if they had worn out. I wanted this book to resemble an old dear diary.
The book measures 7.5 x 8.3 inches (18.5 x 26 cm). It has 104 pages (208 sides) of paper with parchment texture (Keaykolour Parchment Natural) The paper hand torn and thick, it has 170g/m². It is acid free, perfect for writing and sketching in any media, even watercolor.
The end pages are made of hand marbled paper with brown and black veins. The headbands are hand sewn from gold and green silk thread adding a plus of preciousness to the whole journal.
This binding was made in three copies with slightly different design, so please note when you purchase it, small differences can exist between the photos and the binding you will receive. Nevertheless all three copies are equally beautiful!
This notebook is an art object. It would make a beautiful addition to any collection and any library. I hope you will enjoy filling it!
