This original and very worn book is made of a wonderful piece of leather recovered from an old handbag. It has a beautiful color of aged leather and various surface marks and scratches, even sewing marks, that give it such personality and the charm of a book with history. I wanted to allow the beauty of this old leather to appear unaltered.

I entirely preserved all its original aspect. The design incorporates the features of the bag, the buckles being original and adapted to the book closing system in a ingenious way. This gives it a sort of vintage industrial look.

The spine was made to resemble that of an old book, the raised bands being obtained with other stripes of leather underneath. It is covered with brown leather and painted with leather paints.

The book measures 7.5 x 11 inches (19 x 27.5 cm) and has 150 pages (300 sides) of light yellow-cream, hand torn paper. The paper has 125 g/m² and is perfect for writing and sketching in ink and dry media.

The end pages are made of beautiful decorative paper with a slightly raised pattern. The headbands are made of brown leather.

This book is full of charm. It was designed to allow the old leather to speak, making this book so special and authentic. It is an art object and you will love it once you’ll meet it.

* Please note, this book will ship from Bucharest (Romania) where I am located at the moment. Shipping will be made to the address provided by Etsy and not the one on your PayPal. I ship with registered mail that requires signature, so if you wish me to ship this to your office please select that address during checkout or leave me a note in the "message to seller" box.
