Vintage French Wedding Guestbook/ Journal

6 1/2" width
10 1/4" height
1 1/8" depth

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

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

122 pages
(244 counting both sides)

Paper is hand torn, hand sewn and hand stitched with mustard yellow linen thread - using a variation of the long stitch binding - onto eight chocolate brown leather straps. The cover board underneath the leather straps have been carefully carved away - the straps have been adhered to the cover and hand stitched with mustard yellow linen thread. The top and bottom leather straps have been riveted onto the front and back covers. I have carefully hand sanded the ends of the leather straps - to incorporate a vintage look onto the straps - which matches the overall design of the journal.

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 cream colored Canson paper (160g). The cream paper is also the first and last page of the journal - with a thin bronze strip hand painted along the interior edge of the paper - which matches the cover design.

This cover is absolutely beautiful - embossed design in dark brown and gold in the red cover. I have done my best to preserve the original nature of the design - and styled my binding to compliment the cover. The leather straps on the cover carefully follow the gold line design down the front.

The bottom of the journal has a large "H" incorporated into the design.

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

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+/-! There are some white wear marks on the cover (visible in the pictures) - simply due to the vintage age of the cover.

Please just convo me for International Shippings costs!
