This is my latest piece, a Book of Shadows, Grimoire or Journal. The design is based on the triquetra and is adorned with Celtic knot work influences on all external sides of the book.
It is a hand engraved book and is made of MDF. The stain is acrylic paint and boiled linseed oil. All the metal work is made of brass including the screws. The inside front and back cover are lined with a luxurious felt paper.
The blank book has 250 sheets of paper (500 pages both sides) and can hold 350 sheets of white A4 sized paper (700 pages both sides) and the sheets can be added or removed from the blank book by removing the special screws that bind the paper in place within the blank book journal. The screws holding the paper in place can be removed with a flat head screw driver if pages are to be added or removed. The holes punched in the paper are standard spacing so additional paper can be added easily with a standard hole punch.
NB: Please note, the hinges shown in the first 4 images are no longer used, the new hinge being used is shown in the last photo. This helps to keep costs down while still looking great.
The metric dimensions are 277mm wide () 319mm long () and 40mm thick () and it weighs 2kg
The imperial dimenionss are 10.9" wide () 12.55" long () and 1.57" thick () and it weighs 4.41lbs
