Vintage French Journal - Wedding Guestbook

3 3/4" width
6 1/8" height
1 1/4" depth

Authentic Vintage Book Cover! Not a reprint! Rescued from the Puces de Vanves market in Paris!

"Orateurs Attiques"

Interior white paper - 120g
hand cut - hand folded - hand punched - hand sewn

140 pages total
(280 counting both sides)

(20 pages light blue Canson paper)

Paper is hand torn, hand sewn and hand stitched with chocolate brown linen thread - using a french link stitch binding - onto mustard yellow leather straps. The cover board underneath the leather straps have been carefully carved away - the straps have been adhered to the cover and secured with an "X" in matching linen thread.

The covers have been carefully hand cut and hand sanded - and the sides sealed.
The interior paper on the front and back covers - have been replaced with heavy light blue Canson paper (160g). The light blue paper is also the first and last page of every signature in the journal (groups of paper).

I have done my best to preserve the original nature of the design - and styled my binding to compliment the cover.

This journal will open flat - perfect for your guests to sign!

The journal closes with a brown leather strap - that is riveted to the back cover.

Please note: This vintage cover shows signs of wear during its previous life - these qualities only enhance the recycled and vintage nature of this journal! This vintage cover is aged 100+/-!
