The craftsmanship is breath taking ! This journal is extremely well made and full of detail. Highly recommend HandAgedBooks to anyone in the market for a journal . You will never get this type of quality and uniqueness for the price anywhere else . I absolutely love my journal , don't wait get yours today and you won't be disappointed .
Every year I go shopping for a new journal and every year I'm disappointed in the options the stores provide. I wanted something old but new, something with a otherworldly feel to it. Looking for these special books online was helpful but costly! So after buying a lot of different supplies I tried my hand at making my own journal and fell in love with it and the process. All the designs and details are made by me, my husband cuts the wood covers to the size I need. Since cardboard is popular with other book makers, I use wood so the books are sturdy. Every journal has it's own personality. Some feel cozy and makes you want to write next to a warm fire. Some are perfect for poems and short stories! All are made with real leather or suede. All have suede interior. Every book has parchment paper, ivory, blue, gold or copper. All are OOAK (one of a kind) no two books are alike.
Owner, Creator, Customer Service
I'm the owner of HandAgedBooks. My journals and BOS's are my passion and I love it. My husband and I work as a team when building my books and now starting to make Wiccan spell kits.
Assistant, Designer, Shipper
I am the owners husband and helper when it comes to HandAgedBooks. I do the wood crafting and help with spell kits supplies. I work in IT as my "other" job. I am honored to be allowed to assist making these beautiful creations.
These are handmade: 9 by 6 inch Book of Shadows, Journals, Scrapbooks, Herbal Journals, Diaries, Micro Notebooks, Mini Journals, Date books or Art Diary etc.. Everything handmade always has a chance to come with an imperfection. I try my best to inform all my customers what may be wrong with the book in the definition under the photo section in the listing. All the books are made with a wood base and real leather or suede. At this time I do not stain or dye the leather but I will sometime in the future so my customers have more options for color.
There are two custom book listings in my shop, one for each size. With a custom book you get to choose what you want your book to look like. Choice of: leather or suede, color of leather or suede, interior suede color, bookmark ribbon colors and the cover design. Feel free to contact me on Etsy if you have any requests, questions or just to chat and get to know me before making an order.
My books are sold for personal use and are not for resell unless you have my permission.
