Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.”

Auguries of Innocence (1863)
~William Blake

A la paperie & cozy original design! I wanted to incorporate the delicacy of the organic shell with the rugged beauty of leather, and this unique design is the result. One of my favorite quotes, coupled with one of my favorite journals, the quote page also features a sepia print of one of my original botanical photographs, taken here in Nova Scotia, Canada. (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 beautifully dark distressed brown cowhide with the raw edge of the hide on the cover flap, offering a look of antiquity. NOTE: This leather may or may not stain the first and last pages giving it an age-worn antique look. The book is kept securely closed with a natural-colored shell peg, securely sewn through holes in the peg, which tucks into a leather loop on the cover flap... a beautiful, yet sturdy, closure that is really eye-catching!

The book opens completely flat so you can write/draw all the way into the margins. The hearty binding is hand-stitched with dark brown beeswaxed Irish linen thread visible on the spine.
