288 pgs (front/back) = 12 registers with 6 folded sheets each equals

Spine Length: 5.5 inches (14 cm)
Width: 4.375 inches (11.1 cm)
Thickness: 1.4 inches (3.6 cm)

Materials: Decorative paper. Bookboard. unlined bright white 70 lb text weight paper. A couple arms lengths of linen binding thread, dyed with Crystal, Dark Crystal, Chocolate and Black Patent Malts.


This beautiful 288 page blank book provides a delightful space to keep your ponderings, daily gratitude list, or even that handwritten novel you've always dreamed of writing. Small size makes for excellent portability, and Coptic binding allows the journal to lay flat for easy writing and drawing. I use Faber-Castill pens with mine!

The pages are thick hand-cut paper. The cover is hand-cut thick bookboard, which I covered with beautiful shabby chic brown floral decorative paper. Sturdy binding thread, stained and waxed (by me!), was used for the Coptic stitch that binds this fantastic little book together.

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.
