This miniature blank book is made in the exact same technique as my other vintage journals only this one is so small that will fit in your palm. Among the smallest I made so far!

I created it as an art object more than a functional journal, but this little book will still be able to enclose your ideas, thoughts and secrets…

The leather I used for the covers is authentic, and is really old, provenient from a very old and worn handbag. The front side acquired this wonderful appearance of antique leather, all cracked at the superficial layer but strong and resistant on the interior.

The spine was designed to closely resemble a real book cover, made in the traditional technique and covered with brown leather. The relief was obtained with other strips of leather underneath and painted with leather paint.

The book measures 1.4 x 1.1 inches (3.6 x 2.9 cm) and has around 62 pages (122 sides). The paper is Fabriano Soft (95 g/m²), ‘green alga’ color (in fact a light gray-cream), soft surface with slight orange-peel effect. 96 pages (192 sides) grouped in 8 signatures. It will work for both writing and sketching in ink and dry media.

The endpapers are made of beautiful vintage marbled paper that I bought in an antique shop. It was detached from an old book.
The binding is longstitch, made with strong linen thread.

Whether you will really use this little journal or keep it as an art object, you will definitely love it once you’ll meet it.
