This book has both a refreshing and calming feel. The shiny embossed paper on the cover of this journal mimics the texture of snake patent leather (no animals were harmed in the making of this journal). The color green is rich in meaning and symbolizes hope, peace, fertility, vitality, prosperity, generosity, balance, and healing. In the religion of Islam, the color represents perfect faith and in China the color is associated with life and growth.
*** With your purchase, you will receive a gel pen in your choice of gold, silver, or white - perfect for writing on the fabulous colored pages! ***
The binding used is an exposed-stitch binding called the Coptic stitch. This ancient Egyptian binding allows the pages to lay completely flat, which makes for ease of use. The bright green, eco-friendly hemp thread used in the binding adds to the harmony of this book, which helps to create a binding that’s not only functional, but also attractive.
The vibrant paper used for the pages is 100% recycled and contains 30% post-consumer content. It was manufactured by a sixth-generation, family-owned paper mill using hydroelectric energy. This 60 lb. text-weight paper has a nice, smooth surface that takes pen, pencil, and other media well.
This journal was handcrafted using traditional bookbinding techniques and is meant to last a lifetime. All of my books are made using only the finest acid-free and archival materials. Your story is waiting to be told and you deserve a book that will become a treasured heirloom.
