Tooled Leather Journal, Brown Leather, Thick Notebook - Journey through Time
This hardcover journal is made of natural leather dyed and antiqued by hand. I added patina and erosion to obtain this very antiqued look, to make the book resemble an old tome from a library. The decoration was made by blind tooling.
It is a thick book, of considerable weight, filled with white writing paper. It has 230 pages (460 sides) of hand-torn paper (125 gsm) and will work for writing and sketching in ink and dry media.
The book measures 7 x 8.3 inches (18 x 21 cm).
The end pages are made of decorative brown paper. The endbands are embellishing the book like jewelries at the head and the tale of the book, being hand sewn from brown and black threads.
