Bound in soft matt black calf leather, hand sewn on four three cords and with leather core silk endbands, this large blank journal could be the perfect safeguard of your most treasured writings.

The central decoration is a circle of the letters, dots and triangles, all tooled with 23.5 k gold leaf:

X A B

R S R

B A X

They represent ABRAXAS, however in a slightly altered way. I wanted the attention when reading the name to go in a never ending circle but distracted from the center S letter. Also the name ABRAXAS when written in Greek (ΑΒΡΑΣΑΞ) has different number values for each letter, respectively Α = 1, Β = 2, Ρ = 100, Α = 1, Σ = 200, Α = 1, Ξ = 60, a total of 365, the number of days in the year. The number values on the cover of the book make a total of 666.

However you decide to interpret these symbols the book is a sturdy and beautiful companion. A true temple for your writings.

This book is 21x16 cm bound in black calf leather. It has about 400 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. The insides of the covers are gilded as well with gold foil.

You can order this journal with an unique first page decoration. 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:
