FOO DOG ART JOURNAL BLACK SILK BROCADE & BEADED RED LEATHER BLANK BOOK

"Foo Dogs are the ancient sacred dogs of Asia who guard Buddhist temples. The association between these dogs and Buddha is one of great significance. Foo Dogs have the appearance of a lion. The lion in Buddhist religion is seen as sacred..."

"Foo Dogs can be traced as early as the Han Dynasty. Their first appearance was in Chinese art, which dates back to approximately 208 BC to about 221 AD. Foo Dogs vanished for nearly 400 years after their first appearance. They later returned in the T’ang Dynasty that was in power from 618 to 917 AD. Foo Dogs were popular because of their meaning. The Lion is a creature of the feline race that is known as the proud master of all cats."

My love for Asian fabric is here in this sweet gem of an art journal. The cover is genuine silk brocade fabric with Foo Dogs and various Asian motifs.

Spine is a soft smooth red leather. Pages are sewn in with black linen thread and embellished with glass & brass beads and secured with Asian coins and beads.

4 signatures of heavyweight 80 lb text weight Wausau paper. There are 28 folded pages in each signature making a total of 448 pages (back and front) to write or do artwork on.

End paper (inside covers) are a handmade silk fiber ecru/gold colored paper with raised gold dots in a swirly floral motif.



This journal is a piece of art work in itself. The fabric on the cover is simply elegant.

I delight in hunting down fabrics, papers, beads, etc. from all over the world and hand dying fabric, fraying edges, getting ink and dye all over me and bringing all the elements of buttons, leather, images together to make my books. I love what I do and hope you enjoy these books as well.

They make fabulous gifts especially for the art journalist.

I do custom work so if you have an idea you would like to see come to fruition, contact me and let's see what we can create together! :-)
