Last chance at this journal - it will not be relisted!

When I was first learning to bind books I wanted something for myself that was small and light that I could carry with me to sketch and write. I came up with this 288 page small sized blank book - great for journaling, sketching, gratitude lists, and jotting down inspirations.

288 unlined pages (counting 144 front / 144 back)

Spine Length: 5.5 inches (14 cm)
Width: 4.25 inches (10.8 cm)
Thickness: 1.4 inches (3.6 cm)

The pages are hand-cut with rounded corners to prevent "dog ears". The cover is hand-cut thick bookboard, which I covered with beautiful "shabby chic" decorative paper that has a floral paisley design. Sturdy binding thread was coffee stained (by me!) and used for the Coptic stitch that allows this fantastic little book to lay flat for easy writing and drawing. Pages easily take pencil or ink - I use Faber-Castill pens with mine!

Frequently asked questions about AmyLBurns

I love making custom hand-bound books! They make wonderful gifts, and most books are perfect to use as guest books, scrapbooks, sketchbooks, and journals. Customize the cover art, cover paper, page paper, or even provide your own vintage cover.

Turn around time for custom work is between 1 and 3 weeks, plus shipping time.
Most items are mailed wrapped in kraft paper, tied with raffia, ribbon, or hemp, with a gift tag. If you require something more, please let me know and I'll work with you to make it happen.
All items are one of a kind and made in a smoke-free / pet-free home with my own two hands, right here in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

The one exception are greeting cards and postcards which are reproductions of my original work, and are printed by me in my studio.
What kind of pen should I use for my book?

The weight and light tooth of the page paper makes it suitable for pencil and ink. Sharpies are discouraged - these seep through paper rather easily, and their acidic chemicals will do unattractive things to your pages over time, shortening their life.

A regular ballpoint pen is okay in a pinch, however I recommend an archival / ph neutral pen (Micron or Faber-Castell are two great and readily available brands). The inks in these pens are meant to last, and they write softly and do not create indents in the pages like ballpoint. You can find many color choices at your local crafts or art supply store, or online if you have time to order.

For black pages, I recommend gel pens or white charcoal.
