Announcement   I believe that the ritual of writing in a journal or diary is very important device for expressing and creating. There is something calming about getting your thoughts down on paper. I have found it to relieve stress and offer me a new perspective on my life and emotions. Writing in a diary is also a very personal and sacred thing and I have always carefully chosen my journals. I have bought many beautiful books throughout the years and the few plain ones I have owned have been quickly decorated. That is my real goal for Das Buch: to provide beautiful vessels for your innermost thoughts, a small luxury to provide a moment of calm amidst our busy lives.

Each Journal has two hand painted covers. The custom cut paper is then sewn together with a coptic stich between these two works of art to create these unique books. All of my materials are archival and designed to last a lifetime!
My bookmarks are hand painted on both sides and sealed with a glossy spray. No two are alike.
I hope you enjoy my work!

About

Beautiful paper bound between two works of Art!

Book making is a creative hobby that I picked up a few years ago. I spend most of my time painting and making art but over the past few years I have been honing my journal making skills.
I am a great lover and collector of various books and journals and became inspired to create my own. I realized I had a vision to create something no one was doing. There are many hand bound books out there and some amazing leather artists but very few actually paint their books. I look at it as beautiful paper bound between two works of Art! Something useful and aesthetically pleasing giving you the best of both worlds!
