Announcement   Welcome to Medieval Journey!
ORDERS PLACED IN DECEMBER may take longer due to unpredictable postal delays in the holidays period. Read my shipping times for more info.

The process of making an art object flows naturally - I let myself inspired by places, things, people or details, then I hurry back into my workshop to give a shape to my idea.
Each and every one is made with positive energy and creative joy.
I love going to the fare and find little treasures hidden here and there, meet interesting people, brainstorming, listening to music, everything can be an inspiration.
Feel free to ask me anything and please check my shop policies for detailed information.

Journal arrived 17 days after shipment and was well worth the wait. The artist is very skilled in her craft, easy to communicate with, and took care in packaging for shipment. Highly recommended.

Amazing job! I got this for my husband's birthday. I sent Anca a few photos from a place my husband visited in his childhood, and she custom drew this! He loves it!! Great artist and great communication all around!!!

About

My art journals revive the old forgotten craft of bookbinding, so that stories may grow old in them.

I finished Art University and tried many different arts and crafts, from painting to sculpting, to photography, engraving and design.
Somehow bookbinding fit like a glove and I sticked to this craft more than to others, as it combines most of my passions into forming usable objects, and so, the work in progress continues - the blank books are filled with cherished memories, kept and then read after many many years.
MedievalJourney bookbinding studio was founded in 2009 in Romania's capital, Bucharest. I live in a house from 1800's that still has most of the original furniture, the piano and the paintings, things that inspired me to respect the traditional way of making things, preserving the bookbinding methods as passed on from generation to generation.

Payment
I only accept PayPal payments for the smoothest, and fastest delivery of your items. You can pay with a credit card, without having to have a Paypal account; Paypal will then act solely as a payment processor, you still have to choose "pay with paypal" and then on the Paypal page there will be two options, either to pay with your paypal account, or to pay directly with a credit card.
Shipping
IMPORTANT: ORDERS PLACED IN DECEMBER may have take longer than 2-3 weeks due to unpredictable postal delays in the holidays period. You can however choose Express Shipping during checkout, which is faster and has a tracking number.

Shipping usually takes between two and three weeks, more or less, up to five weeks to some far away countries or during holidays. If you have a strict deadline, please make your purchase with a lot of time before the event, I cannot predict the postal unexpected checks or delays. A package is considered delayed after four weeks.

TRACKING NUMBERS: I send all my journals with registered mail which is a safe service and requires signature on delivery. Tracking is available for most European countries and a few others, but some countries like US, Canada and Australia do not offer tracking anymore (Canada and US used to track them but recently downgraded their services)
You can contact me for a price quote for Express mail, which is more expensive but offers tracking numbers for all international orders.
Refunds and Exchanges
✿ IF LOST: You will receive a refund if the package is lost.
✿ IF DELAYED: You will receive the refund of the shipping costs (free shipping)
✿ IF FAULTY: If the product doesn't meet your expectations, please let me know.
✿ IF DAMAGED: If your package appears to be damaged by the postal services, you have to fill in a report at your post in the moment you receive your package, and send me a scanned copy of the file, in order to start the insurance procedure.
✿ IF UNCLAIMED: Please check your mailbox regularly, reshipping will incur a $8 handling fee plus standard shipping fee.
✿ RETURNS shipping fees are your responsibility. Returned packages must have international tracking included. Custom-made, made to order or personalized items can not be returned.
