This is a book made of leather that has beautiful brown-red to black shades of color and was antiqued by me to have the appearance of old leather.

I designed this book to resemble as much as possible a medieval tome. I specifically chose this type of metal charms that resemble those found in ancient books. The lock and the metal brads from the corners are made of antiqued brass.

The raised bands on the spine of the book were obtained with strips of leather underneath the one that covers it. They are decorated with brown patina and leather paints.

The leather of the covers is doubled by cardboard covered in matte black paper. The end pages are made of decorative paper, brass color with an ornamental pattern.

The binding is longstitch, made with strong linen thread.
The headbands are sewn by hand from vintage golden metal thread and black cotton thread.

The book measures ~ 7.3 x 10 inches (18.5 x 26 cm) and has around 170 pages (340 sides) of hand torn white paper. The paper has 125 g/m² and is perfect for writing and sketching in ink and dry media. The edges were toned by me to make the book block fit better the overall antique look of this book.

This journal is an art object. You can use it as a family book or as a journal, either way, I hope you will love it once you’ll meet it.
