“I entered the drawing room purposely late, just before dinner: a cloud of white tarlatane, wings of the same on my shoulders, festooned and trimmed everywhere with trailing ivy sprigs, interespersed with clusters of scarlet rose-berries in my hair.” She put the pen at the table beside the inkpot in an orderly way, and closed her diary with a sigh. It was such a good ball and she was so admired........

This journal is called "The diary of a Victorian Lady" and is part of the series called " The Secret Diaries".

I created the artwork of the covers, with the Victorian era in mind. Many layers of paint and specialized media gave them this unique vintage look. The finish has been made with encaustics ( wax technique), that is further "aging" the journal and grace it with a feeling of the old times. The covers have a rich deep burgunty shade, featuring the word "Notes" in wooden letters, inside an ornate frame. The corners are decorated by metal filigrees. The closure of the journal is an elegant black lace. The spine is decorated with charms and beads.

The finish has been made with several layers of ecological varnishes, to protect the artwork and ensure the vitality of colors for many years to come.

It is hand bound using strong 4-ply Crawford's Irish linen thread in natural color.

It has 160 pages (counting both sides) of a 170 gsm supreme journal paper.

Its size is 17,5 x 25,5cm ( 7 x 10 2/8 inches).

It is a perfect gift and a great conversation piece. It can be used as a guest book, sketchbook, an art journal, a notebook, a diary, a heirloom book or for every occassion a special book is needed.

I will pack your item very carefully and send it to you by registered mail.

All my journals come with a certification of authenticity.
