NewSouthBooks' Shop Announcement

OK, a little bragging: These handmade and TRULY bound leather journals have been in the marketplace since 2012. As a professional illustrator, the journals have become another extension for artisanship. Take a look at my website:

Please take a moment, read the vita. The same professionalism that brought my work to permanent collections in numerous Louisiana State Museums and universities is represented in these journals. Real books with real purpose from NewSouthBooks, true objets d’art.

Red Leather Journals

The Shreveport Regional Arts Council most recently commissioned a large black leather journal/registry for their new artist residency, the Kallenberg Art Tower. The journal is adorned with silver.

A new designer services studio is opening this summer in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Magnolia Emporium will easily be the coolest place in all Charlotte. NewSouthBooks is being commissioned to produce an exclusive line of black leather bound journals for Magnolia. Take a look:

In downtown Shreveport a brand new arts market is setting a new agenda. On Lake Street, the Agora Borealis has it goin on. Stop by, take a look. Buy a leather bound journal by NewSouthBooks.

It’s fun reading. Most posts are an interesting, historical or geographic profile of where a NSB journal is shipping. We have a virtual map with red pins (and assorted other info) of destinations. Some of those destinations are Hollywood. A big time HBO producer buys my journals for herself. And her friends. Pretty damn cool. Last summer a journal shipped to the international sailing yacht, ‘Eos’ while docked in New York Harbor. Research will reveal who the owner is.

Leather, fine art papers (115w, 120w, 135w or 250w), silver and copper, imported silk head bands.

All journals are bound in leather. No canvas or wood or plastic and no Coptic stitching. Just the finest oil tanned or stone oiled hides binding the finest quality art papers. All pages are hand torn for deckle edges, folded into hand stitched signatures. Old world bookbinding methods are applied with linen and glue and each journal is finished with imported silk head bands
