This is an Art Nouveau style book that would make a beautiful art journal, Journal, sketch book, or anything at all. It is hand tooled with an teal blue Art Nouveau Heron standing in a pool, surrounded by cattails and reeds. The sun is setting behind the heron.

**My books are not stamped with a pattern. They are tooled with a swivel knife and other tools.

I made this book from vegetable tanned leather, dyed with yellow, green, and blue oil based dye, and sealed it with lacquer. I sewed in the signatures with blue waxed thread for long durability. Some prefer the strings left as they are, but if you prefer them trimmed close, I will be happy to do that.

The book is a little over 5 3/4 inches tall, and a little over six inches long. The spine is over an inch wide, and it is sewn with eight signatures of five sheets of paper, which totals 160 pages, counting both sides. The paper is high quality, extra bright white, 60 lb. Great for sketching on or writing on with a fountain pen. (I know this because my husband used to use it for sketching before I stole it from him.)
