Made To Order Journal crafted from a vintage French book published in 1932. Unlike most upcycled journals, I include some of the original pages from the book along with illustrations I've collected from other books. This makes a unique journal that is a work of art in itself, full of surprises, beauty and intrigue! This journal's small size, 6.5 x 4.5 inches, makes it perfect for carrying everywhere, ready for your stories, dreams & sketches.
Excellent as a gift for yourself or someone you love. Comes gift wrapped in vintage recycled paper.

Your journal will be handmade by me using old world techniques. I will carefully cut away the old text block and spine then rebind the cover with ivory paper. The journal will be bound using an exposed binding so you see the decorative stitch at the spine. This binding is strong and flexible, allowing the journal to open flat. The last photo shows this binding style.

- 60 pages of ivory sketch paper, hand tord
- 12 pages of a mix of reclaimed paper & recycled paper
- 12 pages of French lined paper
- 4 illustrations
