Item details



faux fur, silver wire, copper wire, brass paddle lock, faux suede leather, blank white writing paper

This would make a nice gift for someone special or oneself.

Thank you for looking at my handcrafted Monster Book, this is such a fun whimsical journal.

I am a big geeky Harry Potter fan and some of my favorite things in the books and movies were the Monster Book of Monsters.

I handcrafted this Monster Book Journal using faux fur and faux suede leather, no animals were harmed in the process.

First I cut, drilled and bound about 100 pages of blank white writing paper using copper wire.

Then I hand-painted the eyes on the back of glass cabochons. After making the book cover with faux fur and forming the face in the faux leather I wire wrapped the eyes onto the face using silver wire and soldered them in place.

I then made the mouth, incorporating rose quartz crystals and freshwater pearls for the small teeth, and built a latch system that hinges from the top to the bottom of the mouth and locks with a small brass paddle lock (this allows the journalist to write or draw freely, securing their expressions)

After the little teeth, I created larger teeth wiring them on the inside top and bottom covers then bound the copper wired, blank pages onto the cover using silver wire then covered the inside of the front and back pages with the faux suede leather.

This fun journal is about 9.5” long x 7” wide and about 2.5” thick.

Oh ya, remember you need to stroke the spine

Thank you for supporting my functional, handcrafted art and hope you have a fun and wonderful day,

Per Harry Potter Wiki Fandom page:

"A vicious guide to monstrous creatures."

The Monster Book of Monsters, by Edwardus Lima, is a particularly vicious textbook that is used in Care of Magical Creatures while Rubeus Hagrid (who thought the book's aggressive nature was funny) was the teacher.

The book is quite informative, but one usually finds it difficult to access the information within due to the book's unfortunate tendency to try and bite off the reader's fingers. The only way to subdue the book is to stroke its spine, upon which the book opens placidly.
