Here is another Journal creation I came up with.

*** YOU ARE PURCHASING THE EXACT ITEM FROM THE PHOTOS ****
( Click on the full size image to see an even larger size photo. much better detail.)

This is a mishmash of things inspired by 14th Century battle armor with a hint of the Braveheart turquoise and even a Monty Python yellow to round it out.

This is more of a functional work of art rather than simply a journal. You could hang it on your wall or cary it around with you. Either way, it will get looks and questions and conversations.

LEATHER:
This is all leather bound. The yellow looks like cloth, but it's, in fact leather. As are all the leather squares. Hand painted and antiqued.

COVER:
27 individual leather squares were hand painted, antiqued, clear sealed and then attached with 4 rivets each. The yellow leather has a unique cross hatched pattern that gives it the look of a canvas or other woven material.
- Also, strung under 4 of the leather patches, are hand rusted spike nails to bring a bit of metal and rust into the piece as well as bring a bit more stability to the cover.

CLOSURE:
Leather belt with patina'd buckle which is clear sealed.

BINDING:
This is a softbound book. meaning the leather acts as the covering and binding. As apposed to hardbound or hardback books.

PAPER:
340 pages. (170 individual sheets)
- Acid-free, "Natural", off white, 24pnd, Vellum Finish
- hand stitched to the cover with, round, black leather lace.
(in this photo the paper is hand torn, creating roughened, 'deckled' edges.

DIMENSIONS:
Book size = 6.5"h x 5.5"w x 1.75" Thick
Paper size = 6"h x4.5"w

BOOKMARK:
a Blood red super soft suede leather bookmark.

CUSTOMIZE?
- Initials: You can have 3 initials embedded into the cover. Select a leather square on the cover to use for lettering.
- Please convo me to discuss these or any other options you may want.

This item is made in a smoke free environment.Please let me know if you have any questions.

I painstakingly agonize over each and every design. I only create designs that I want to have and use on my own. To me, the look and feel of the journal, inspires the excitement to write in it. This is what gives my journals there own original look and feel. I do look at what others are making, but I never want to make something I've seen before.
