This one has the cover made out of nubuck leather (thick quality suede) that I've painted with a stylized representation of the sun.
My journals are handmade from head to toes, inside and out :) I begin by tearing big sheets of quality paper and fold the pages, grouping them into 7 signatures. Hand torn paper has beautiful distressed edges that gives a handmade look to them. I chose a piece of leather that inspires me and cut it to shape. Each signature (group of paper sheets) is then sewn onto the cover. I sew most of my books in longstitch medieval binding style as it gives the finished journal a nice pattern on the spine - I want them to be pretty no matter from which angle you look at it! I paint my design on it with special leather pigments and let it dry. For this one, I made a closure system with a belt and a strap on the back of the journal.

Pages: white unlined paper (170 g/m²). The journal has 168 pages (counting both sides).
Size: 7.5 x 5.3 in (19x13 cm), measured on the cover (the book block is ~ 1 cm smaller).
