Edward the Seventh was known as the "peaceable king". The Edwardian period is sometimes imagined as a romantic golden age of long summer afternoons and garden parties & a time of innovation in technology and human rights
This handstitched blank journal is recycled from a vintage box of King Edward Imperial Cigars
Carefully reconstructed and bound with scarlet thread and vintage covers from the original box
Intentionally crafted to retain the faded, timeworn aesthetic of an antique cigar box
Approximately 5.375" X 8.25" x 1"
180 large pages of mustard and blue colored 100% recycled text weight paper by the environmentally friendly French Paper Co. A wonderfully smooth surface for writing or dry sketching your stories on
Velvet sheets cover the inner boards
Handbound in a modified version of the Coptic Stitch; This book will lay flat for easy writing/markmaking and accommodates lefties and righties
Because of its age these books have many beautiful imperfections--the corners are rounded and bumped; slight bending on front cover of large book; scraped and torn edges; also smudges and stains on covers
Every step in the creation of this journal set was crafted the old world way using hand tools: awl, needle & thread, ruler, bone folders, glue brushes & a steel blade. Made with careful consideration for the environment and lots of love slipped between the velvet inner covers
