This gorgeous red and silver book was published in France at the turn of the century and will make a unique and timeless journal. To create your journal, the original text will be carefully removed and the cover rebound with ivory paper and select illustrations and text from the original book. Beautifully bound with waxed linen thread in the Coptic style which allows the journal to open flat, perfect for writing and sketching. Comes sweetly gift-wrapped in vintage music paper, ready to give as a gift, to yourself or someone you love.
