Bound in durable brown calf leather, hand sewn on four hemp cords and with double core silk endbands, this large blank journal could be the perfect safeguard of your most treasured writings.

The decoration is simplistic. The tools were heated and held over a candle to coat them in carbon in order to achieve this contrast of the tooling. Two sets of borders guard the central solar element. The sun is above the purpose of the book, engraved on the leather "Book of MAGIC". The decoration is meant to not draw too much attention to itself but be assertive of the purpose of the book at the same time. Attention is drawn fiercely however when the grimoire is opened, revealing the crimson endpapers guarded by a golden border. A whole new world lays inside, waiting to be filled by your hand. A true temple for your writings.

This book is 21x16 cm bound in brown calf leather. It has about 600 pages blank unlined paper consisting of 60% recycled paper, 30% cellulose fibers and 10% cotton fibers. A special adhesive is used that doesn't harm the book over time and all the processes can be reversed. Even after many years the book can be rebound without significant damage being made to it in the process. The decoration and lettering is blind tooled.. The edges are darkened and sprinkled. The insides of the covers are gilded as well.

You can order this journal with an unique first page decoration, made in the style of old Balkan manuscripts. To further personalize this item you can request your name or your initials to be engraved on the leather or in the decoration. You can see previous illuminations through this link:
