*Above words are embossed in black on the back of this book.

*Small (approximately 4 1/2" wide x 4" tall x 2" thick) black leather and green hand dyed velvet bound journal with image of Buddha embossed in black into rich sunset red dyed velvet sewn to green velvet with black thread. Red Swarovski crystal embellishes Buddha. Gorgeous texture.

*Spine is beaded with green and red beads.

*4 signatures of Sundance heavy weight cover stock textured (similar to watercolor paper) white paper. Suitable for most wet media. Would be a great art or writing journal.

*Signatures are 12 folded pages making a total of 192 pages when counting both back and front pages.

*Paper sewn in with thick durable black waxed linen thread and secured with really cool crackled stone tangerine colored beads. The spine is embellished with various green and tangerine glass beads.

*Hand dyed green crinkled silk ribbon bound into book for a book mark with an antique bronze charm of Buddha.

*Endpaper (inside cover) is simply stunning Chiyogami paper from Japan with a floral motif with various greens, white and silver.

*Book lays open flat to write or do art work in.

This book would make an elegant gift especially for the avid journalist.

A great deal of care, thought and time go into the making of each one of my hand bound books. There are minor flaws and imperfections on occasion but that is the charm of hand made. Each one is a work of art in itself.

I work green by utilizing as many of my materials as I can without discarding them into a landfill. Scraps become a unique fabric of which I will start making quilted journal covers out of soon. Smaller scraps of paper & book board become mini books. I also use recycled materials as often I can.

I do custom work so if you have an idea you would like to see come to fruition, contact me and let's see what we can create together! :-)
