This pocket-sized handmade book stands out because of its one-of-a-kind painted cover. I created watercolor washes in pink and orange and used a resist technique the left some swaths a vibrant white.

The buttonhole binding allows the painted cardstock cover to wrap from front to back, leaving one peek-a-boo window on the spine that shows off the pages inside.

The inside pages are made from one of my absolute favorite papers, which is lightly textured and bright white.

Size: 5'' x 3.5''
Pages: 160 pages
Style: Buttonhole binding
Uses: journal, sketchbook, notebook

You'll receive the exact book 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.
