This handmade book would make a great sketchbook or wedding guest book. The coptic stitch allows the book to stay open easily and lie nice and flat while in use.

This book is made to order (please allow 2-4 weeks). This listing is for one 8" tall by 8" wide book that contains 80 blank pages (front and back). I hand bind this book with the coptic stitch binding using orange crush waxed Irish linen thread. The cover is book board that I cover with a handmade slate gray Lokta paper (handmade in Nepal) (color note: some have described this as more of a bluish gray). The interior pages are blank Mohawk Superfine paper, a nice paper for pen and pencil writing and sketching. All paper is acid free and archival. A nice environmental bonus is that Mohawk Superfine paper is manufactured with wind power and is Green e-certified and FSC certified.The end sheets are heather blue paper.

CUSTOMIZE: This book can be made in almost any size, up to 11.5" wide (for the interior page spread, the cover can then be 11.75" wide at its max). Send me a message if you're interested in a custom order. I can also bind it with any of the thread colors pictured in the last image. Just send me a message if you have any questions!

INTERNATIONAL: Please inquire for a shipping price quote. Provide your location and what type of shipping you prefer (express, regular, etc.).

You can see my other sketchbooks/guestbooks here:

I cut all the paper by hand, giving some unique unevenness to every book.

All of my items listed as wedding guestbooks or hardcover sketchbooks ship priority mail (domestic and international).

Note: Thread sampler card is by Royalwood, Ltd., a great supply shop in Ohio that I buy all my waxed linen thread from!
