This journal is made of brown vintage leather recovered from a very old handbag. It has the beautiful aged overall appearance of old leather, with darker areas and patina around the edges. I tried to preserve as much as possible from the original so most of the sewing marks and the few sewing thread that was preserved are original.

The spine was designed in the same style as that of the old books. It is made in the traditional technique and covered in brown-ocher leather. The raised bands were obtained with other strips of leather underneath and painted with leather paint.

This book is square. It measures 5.5 x 7 inches (14 x 18 cm) and has around 110 pages (220 sides) of hand torn tea-stained paper. Some pages are lighter, others are darker but you will always be able to write down on them. The paper has 125 g/m² and is perfect for writing and sketching in ink and dry media.

The endpages are made of beautiful decorative paste papers made by me. These papers are really hand painted and not printed. If you have the curiosity, you can read about how I made them on my blog at http://teostudio.blogspot.com/2011/03/paste-papers.html

This journal is perfect for everyday use. It is simple, classic and can go everywhere with you. Enjoy your writing!
