Open me up, and you’ll find I begin with two vintage French postage stamps along with a couple of vintage ink airmail stamps – the perfect beginning for an adventure...
In between, I am filled with 168 sheets (a generous 336 pages counting both sides) of 140gsm drawing & sketching paper made in Germany by Hahnemühle. This double-sided paper is suitable for all drawing techniques, including pencil, charcoal, pen & ink. It will tolerate light washes without bleeding & has good eraser resistance.
Hand-torn for a rustic deckled edge, my sumptuous pages have been richly tea-stained & pressed before being stitched directly into my coat with salmon coloured Irish linen thread. This style of longstitch binding allows me to lay completely flat when in use for accessibility and writing ease. Due to the spontaneous effect of tea-staining, no two pages are the same.
When not in use, I’ll protect your creations with my triple wrap leather tie which simply secures on my back with a mix of teal & light blue wooden beads.
Measuring 6 x 4 ¼ inches with a hefty 2 ¼ inch-thick spine, I’m the perfect companion for the traveler, gypsy or wanderer. Take me through cities, over mountains and wide open valleys.
