One of a kind journals

Books always played a big part in my life, and when I realised I could make them by myself, it was like a miracle!

At first I made them in the traditional way, mostly sketchbooks for my own use.

But soon I realised that what really fascinates me are journals that look like they are old. Like things from ancient times, when there where still many secrets to discover and a lot of mysterious things going on ...

Additional policies and FAQs
Is it PET and SMOKE free?
I do my best to keep my workroom free from any smells other than leather, acrylics, paints, inks... So yes, pet and smoke free. But some of the materials I use do smell.

Do you make CUSTOM ORDERS?
Nope, no longer, sorry. I only make exceptions for very good friends sometimes.
But I'm happy to make sold designs again, or a design you like - but would prefer to have on a different leather color.

Are you interested in WHOLESALE?
Nope. I can't produce masses of books and my prices are not high enough to give big discounts so - usually, wholesale does not work for me.

If you have any questions, just ask. I love to hear from you. Either start an Etsy conversation or send an email to ri [!at]
