I handmade this book and bound it in a vintage wallet that was falling apart. It is made from rich brown Moroccan leather and has the original wallet sections inside the front cover to use as pockets to store lists, photos... anything you like! The pockets have lovely curved edges and the book closes with a tab.

The measurements are:

approx 4 x 6.5 inches (1/2 inch thick)

10 x 17 cm (1.5 cm thick)

I used forest green ribbon and the pages are 130gsm acid free Daler Rowney cartridge paper stitched with linen binding thread.
I am not sure of the exact age of the wallet but it was definitely made before decimalisation in 1971. I'd guess from the design that it is from the 1960's and I have restitched all the pockets to make sure it lasts just as long for it's new owner :)

*Please note that the items photographed in the pockets of the book are not included*
