My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-
It gives a lovely light!

~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "First Fig" (1920)

The front page has lovely sepia photo of Millay, American lyrical poet and playwright and the first woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. It is captioned with her most beloved poem "First Fig", from "A Few Figs from Thistles". (This journal can also come without the quote page. Please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The leather is a beautiful warm whisky brown cowhide with the raw edge of the hide used on the cover flap. The natural oil in this leather has lightly stained/'antiqued' the end pages, adding a rustic charm. A satin ribbon wraps around a lovely button.

It has 320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb./105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges; it's acid free and archival and opens completely flat so you can write/draw all the way into the margins. The binding is hand-stitched in coordinating beeswaxed Irish linen thread visible on the spine.
