Black Granite Laminate Black Pages Photo Album/Art Pastels SketchBook

This journal has more specific uses than the others in my shop that are made with the white drawing papers. Having the black pages & the spacer pages, it lends itself quite obviously as a beautiful photo album where standard sized photos, can be glued or with the use of photo dots can be displayed & protected between the sturdy, inflexible laminate covers.
(not suitable for photo corners, as the journal becomes too bulky and not close properly) If you would like to write something about a photo, you can do so with the use of a silver pen - as can be seen in photo #3
For the artist; the papers used are specific for pastel, charcoal & dry mediums of applications. The Ancient "Coptic Binding" gives the journal the ability to open flat for full use of each of the pages.

Journal Details:

Dimensions: 200mm X 147mm (Medium Landscape)
Pages: 120pgs (front & back) with spacer pages
Binding: Double Needle coptic Binding X 2pair / Celtic Weave X 1 pair
Thread: Slate Grey 4ply Waxed Linen Thread
Papers: Arttec - Black Pastel Paper 135gsm 100% recycled Made in Australia
Spacer Papers: Quill XL Multi Board Black 210gsm 100% acid free
Covers: Black Granite Laminate / Black & silver splotches with gold specks / gloss surface / 4mm thickness

An innovative & variation to the covers I usually make, using 4mm glossy laminate. Durable, sturdy and very smart looking, this is the first of it's type in my 7yrs of bookmaking!! I am always searching for different materials to use for an unusual & interesting feature for each journal made, aiming for the one-of-a-kind effect to draw attention and create a talking piece as an introduction to the secrets you will hold inside!! I don't know about you, but all this mass production has left me craving for original works & pieces in every aspect of my life!! There is nothing like the feeling of something made with care, love & passion.

If there are any queries that you have about this journal, please do not hesitate to contact me through my shop.
Enjoy your day
