Announcement   I believe that the ritual of writing in a journal or diary is very important device for expressing and creating. There is something calming about getting your thoughts down on paper. I have found it to relieve stress and offer me a new perspective on my life and emotions. Writing in a diary is also a very personal and sacred thing and I have always carefully chosen my journals. I have bought many beautiful books throughout the years and the few plain ones I have owned have been quickly decorated. That is my real goal for Das Buch: to provide beautiful vessels for your innermost thoughts, a small luxury to provide a moment of calm amidst our busy lives.

Each Journal has two hand painted covers. The custom cut paper is then sewn together with a coptic stich between these two works of art to create these unique books. All of my materials are archival and designed to last a lifetime!
My bookmarks are hand painted on both sides and sealed with a glossy spray. No two are alike.
I hope you enjoy my work!

Best gift I've ever given myself! Quick shipping and great service. Even better, I LOVE this little journal. Bought as a gratitude journal and it's perfect! Beautifully made, solid and absolutely gorgeous! Delighted my heart from the moment I opened it and I look forward to years of looking back on the year I "got my happy back" with this lovely little book. Unique and high quality...would make an awesome gift! Thank you!

About

Beautiful paper bound between two works of Art!

The name Das Buch started off as a joke. I was searching for a catchy extravagant title for my newest creations but was struggling to find the right fit. I wanted something that would roll off the tongue and create intrigue. The night before I began brainstorming I happened to notice while watching youtube commercials that Volkswagon's slogan is "Das Auto" which translates to "the car." I felt that this short phrase was comically weak for a slogan, especially for a car company like Volkswagon.
My friend and I chuckled over it and the next day when I was brainstorming I jokingly came up with Das Buch. Needless to say it stuck. Many people will assume that I am getting in touch with my German roots but the truth is I just enjoy saying it! Short but sweet!
I began drawing and painting after suffering a chronic dance injury. I couldn't dance so I filled the creative void with art which then lead me to open my first Etsy shop which features my fine art and illustrations.
Book making was something I started to fill my summer. I am a great lover and collector of various books and journals and became inspired to create my own. I realized I had a vision to create something no one was doing. There are many hand bound books out there and some amazing leather artists but very few actually paint their books. I look at it as beautiful paper bound between two works of Art! Something useful and aesthetically pleasing giving you the best of both worlds!
