"A book is like a garden carried in the pocket." ~Chinese Proverb


— l e a t h e r & d e s i g n —
Here's a chance to own a print of one of my original illustrations, and a unique journal...all in ONE! The first page of the journal has a print of one of my original illustrations, captioned with the above Chinese proverb. (This journal can also come without the quote page; please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The leather is a beautiful antique-looking buttery tan, with a wrap around flap. I've hand-engraved a botanical image on the cover using a burning tool. A dark brown cord wraps around the journal, keeping the book securely closed. NOTE: I've noticed that, over time, this leather has a tendency to lightly stain/'antique' cover pages, adding a rustic charm.

approx. 5½" x 4¼" and 1½" thick

320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb./105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges - it's acid free, archival. The journal opens flat so you can write all the way into the margins. The page sections have been hand-stitched to the leather cover with beeswaxed Irish linen thread, which is visible on the spine.
