"The Turquoise" - Leather Journal with Lock and Key, Blue and Green Leather

€345.00 EUR
This book is the bold version of my traditional leather journal with lock and key. It was designed using brighter and more vivid colors in a rich chromatic harmony based on colors green and blue, but still to resemble a medieval tome from ancient times. 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. I saw this system used in old books and I just loved it.

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.

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 is white, blank, it has 125 g/m², is hand torn and works for ink and dry media. This paper is acid free and does not bleed through.

The end pages are made of blue decorative paper. The headbands are hand sewn by me from blue and yellow-gold thread.

This journal is an art object. You can use it as a family book or as a secret journal, even as sketchbook or a photo album due to its heavy weight paper, either way, you will love it once you’ll meet it.
