I have handmade this journal using an old Boys storybook which was very tired and otherwise destined for the rubbish pile.

This is a large journal measuring 10x7 1/8" {1 1/4" thick} and containing approximately 110 pages of 110gsm {medium-light weight} recycled paper, ideal for all manner of purposes including sketching.

I use these as all-purpose, every-day, go-to notebooks, but you may use for whatever it is your lovely heart desires {children love them also}.

It has an exposed spine, and I have used beeswaxed linen bookbinding thread to bind the pages with longstitches and kettle stitches as well as two leather piecings and a tie closure.
Lies flat when open.

The inside of each cover is covered with decorative paper, as seen in the pictures.

As dictated by the very nature of the old materials used, the cover tells' its' own story.........it's marked and battered, this was a well used book and this can be seen in the pictures also.

This is a lovely book to have, and would make a wonderful gift.

Please ask if you have any questions at all.
