Purple leather journal with silver tooled and painted decoration. Silver Leaf
This romantic journal is bound in purple leather varying in shades from light grey to very dark purple. I decorated the cover with botanical leaf motifs to give it a romantic look and I added silver accents to make it look precious like a jewelry. The decoration was made with heated brass tools, each small element at a time. I wanted this book to give its owner the feeling of a unique romantic diary.
The book measures 7.5 x 8.3 inches (18.5 x 26 cm). It has 134 pages (268 sides) of artist quality paper, Modigliani Bianco. The paper is warm white, hand torn and has a medium thickness (140 gsm) being perfect for writing and sketching in any media, even watercolor.
The end pages are made of hand marbled paper with purple, blue, yellow, and red veins. The headbands are hand sewn from silver and purple silk thread adding a plus of elegance to the journal.
This binding is one of a kind. It is an art object that would make a beautiful addition to any collection and any bookcase. I hope you will enjoy it!
