In this handmade book, I bound together a variety of smooth and textured papers, including in gray, green, brown, white, and cream. I sewed in the Italian Longstitch binding style, which shows off the white stitching on the spine while allowing the pages to lay flat for easy journaling or sketching.

Gray leather covers the book, which wraps closed with a matching leather strap. It's small and portable — the same size notebook I carry in my purse.

Size: 3.5" x 5"
Pages: 140
Style: Italian Longstich, white thread
Uses: notebook, address book, travel journal

You'll receive the book with white thread shown in this listing.

All books are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly environment.

About the artist:
Katie Gonzalez studied the art of bookmaking in Cortona, Italy during the summer of 2006. Visiting a medieval bindery, working with luxurious materials, and learning to make paper by hand instilled a sense of traditional techniques into her work. She combines that background with her contemporary graphic design degree from the University of Georgia. She lives and works in East Nashville with her husband and her brindle bullmastiff.
