Dressed in soft brown reclaimed leather, my coat is reminiscent of milk chocolate. On my cover I’m embellished with a beautiful olde vintage key to remind you to unlock those thoughts within, and let them flow onto my pages. Measuring just over 1 ½ inches long, this has been stitched with linen thread.

Open me up, and you’ll discover I begin & end with two antique postcards – one different from the other. Selected from Bibliographica’s personal extensive collection of olde postcards, these have been re-printed and hand aged to mimic the original as close as possible. The exquisite handwriting is readable, taking you back to another era. This is evident on the 3rd & 4th photographs to your left.

In between, I am filled with 96 sheets (192 pages counting both sides) of 140gsm drawing & sketching paper made in Germany by Hahnemühle. This double-sided paper is suitable for all drawing techniques, including pencil, charcoal, pen & ink. It will tolerate light washes without bleeding & has good eraser resistance.

Hand-torn for a rustic deckled edge, my sumptuous pages have been richly tea-stained & pressed before being stitched directly into my coat with natural archival linen thread. This style of longstitch binding allows me to lay completely flat when in use for accessibility and writing ease. Due to the spontaneous effect of tea-staining, no two pages are the same.

Measuring 6 x 4 ¼ x inches, I’m an easily transportable journal perfect for urban or country travel. I like to be carried in satchels, sleep in bedside drawers, ride in bicycle panniers & sit on café tables.
