This tall leather journal has a patchwork cover, made of leather strips that I have stitched together. I've selected a mixture of different leathers and suedes in shades of brown.

Book size is 10¼" x 4¼" and 1" thick (26cm x 11cm x 2.5cm).

There are 256 cream pages (when you count both sides of each sheet) and the paper is 24lb cotton writing paper.

This journal has a wrap-around cover and It is kept neat with a long, narrow, leather strap that wraps around and can be looped through on the front to keep it snug.

The pages are handbound using a longstitch binding technique, sewn with linen thread and visible on the spine. This type of binding makes a very sturdy and practical book structure that opens flat.

About the Artist, Rhonda Miller

I have been bookbinding and experimenting in the realm of book arts for over ten years. My handbound journals are made very carefully, one at a time, to ensure that they are both durable and beautiful. Many of the techniques employed in creating a journal are centuries old and I am constantly working to learn more about ancient bookbinding methods that can be used with modern materials to make unique and functional journals.
