This journal is made of beautiful brown leather. This leather is almost 50 years old, its color is natural (not dyed) but I applied a patina on it to give it an worn, aged appearance.

I designed the journal to preserve as much as possible from the original manufacturing process, preserving all the particularities of the leather and trimming the cover in such a way as to resemble raw leather edges. Above all, I wanted this book to seem old and rustic as if it was rediscovered after being lost for many years. That is why I chose a simple but strong construction for the book - in a derived technique of sewing on cords. This makes a beautiful model on the spine.

The covers are decorated by tooling with a very simple design.

The journal closes with a leather stripe that wraps around several times keeping the book well closed and protecting your writing.

The journal measures 5 x 4.5 inches (11.5 x 13 cm) and has a total of 130 pages (260 sides) of hand thorn paper. The paper is white, has 120 gsm and will work for both writing and sketching in ink and dry media.

The first and last signatures start with pieces from a front page of a vintage musical sheet.
