Description

This journal or blank book is the first of a collection of four books that are in this series called "The Gates". This was intitled "Gate to the Soul" as the covers of the journal symbolize the doors of a gate that open to the inside, to the inner self. Writing a journal is in a way a meditation and a trip to self discovery.

This journal was decorated in a very special way, using hot tools to give the leather a texture similar to that of the wood, which was then handpainted and antiqued to look just like an old gate. Permanent leather dyes were used and the painting was sealed to protect it against scratching and degrading.

The end pages are made of decorative brown paper. The headbands are hand sewn from brown and black color thread.

The book measures 10.2 x 7.5 inches (26 x 19 cm). It has 104 pages (208 sides) of artist quality paper. This is warm white Fabriano paper, hand torn, thick (200 g/m²) and will work for both writing and sketching in any media, including watercolor. The edges of the book were slightly toned to make the bookblock fit better the overall of the book.

This journal is an art object. You can use it as a journal, sketchbook or as a family heirloom, either way it will be an unique art piece that you'll own.

Additional policies

★ Please consider that possible irregularities in the execution of items are considered a value of handmade works of art.

★ Leather is an uneven material by its nature. Its surface may have particularities that should be seen as signs of authenticity or of the manufacturing process. I generally treat leather for enhanced elasticity, resistance, surface appearance. These products (wax, oil, silicone) may have a specific smell in the beginning that generally vanishes with time.

★ I do my best to take realistic pictures, using daylight and computer processing so the photos are as similar as possible to the reality. However, it is obvious that slight differences will still exist.
