Each Binding Bee Journal is a one-of-a-kind, no two are alike! This book would be great for a daily writer, wedding guest book, or sketchbook. This one has a genuine antique doorplate on the cover and closes with a strap and antique skeleton key.

This book was bound with linen thread using the Long Stitch book-binding method and comes with handmade cotton paper pages that feature a deckled (torn) edge on all sides. The paper is ideal for pen and ink, and dry-mixed media. I do not recommend it for watercolor (unless VERY light). The paper is archival and suitable for attaching photos to as well.

9 inches tall
6 inches wide
contains: 72 pages of hand-torn, deckle edge handmade paper (144)

Hand-crafted in Indianapolis, Indiana.

There is nothing that can compare to the exceptional guest book we received for our wedding. The original covers of the book went with our vintage 1920s theme. That paired with the beautiful binding and vintage pages really sets the tone for our wedding. So looking forward to having it on display for all of our guests to sign!

Caring and attentive, the owner created the most beautiful journal, hand wrapped, and shipped to my loved one. She was easy and fun to work with, and incorporated my special requests with ease. The finished product was beyond my expectations! Will purchase from this shop again!
