The blank journal (no lined pages available in this hand sewn series) is covered in a bright green Italian bookcloth. The boards have a recessed area where I have included this unique praying mantis print. The recessed area prevents the card from becoming abraded when sliding the book on and off the shelf.
The paper is from French Paper and contains 100%recycled fibers. The style of binding is Coptic - an ancient bookbindng techniques that dates back 2,000 years. Sections are created by folding down paper into sections and sewing the sections to the boards while linking the sections to each other.
