Hand-crafted in Indianapolis by Megan Winn of The Binding Bee.

Listing is for leather journal pictured above. Materials include oil-rubbed leather exterior and 100% cotton rag handmade paper text block. The leather is *reclaimed* and came from an old boot factory from the Midwest. The paper is hand-made by a paper maker and is suitable for wet or dry mediums.

I bound this book by hand using linen thread (extra strength) and the Long Stitch binding method to ensure both durability and that the book will lay flat when open.

6 3/4 inches tall
5 1/2 inches wide
contains: 96 pages of hand-torn, deckle edge handmade paper.
