These beautiful notebooks provide a high quality plain ivory cartridge paper* for writing, drawing and sketching, in an attractive cover of luxuriously soft Light Brown suede leather. The edge of the protective 'flap' is deliberately left uncut to give a 'ragged' look. The shape of the flap is determined by the edge of the hide from which it is cut, and is consequently unique to each journal.
This listing is for one book of the following specifications:
Size: 6 inches x 5 inches x 1.25 inches (15cm x 13cm x 3cm)
Contains 100 pages/200 sides (in 5 individually stitched sheaves of 24 sheets)
Weight: 350 grams (approximately 1.25lbs)
Quality: - Paper is a heavyweight acid-free plain unlined cartridge paper. This paper is made from cotton rags and will NOT yellow with age!
The paper is bound in individually stitched signatures (NOT glued!)
The paper has been selected for sketching and drawing in a variety of media, including pencil, crayon, charcoal, crayons etc. It is also suitable for writing with pencil, biro, gel pens etc and for use with a fountain pen.
Binding: is 100% genuine suede leather hide, stained with a non-toxic natural dye. The suede leather is of a heavy quality, and is thick but soft and supple. The binding will NOT crack, tear, or disintegrate (unlike glued bindings). The book will life flat and remain open at any page you select.
Fastening: is a tie-strap of matching suede thong that doubles as a pagemark.
I designed these journals because I could not find the kind of journal I wanted to use - which needs to be beautiful, practical, and durable.
I have similar journals in a wide range of sizes and colours in my eBay store, and I am always open to new designs and ideas.
All my journals are entirely handmade, and each piece is unique.
A note on colour:
The book in this listing has a LIGHT BROWN cover. Because web pictures do not show colours faithfully I have photographed this book alongside a contrasting black background in an effort to bring out the colour better by contrast. Please also note that as with all suede leather handling creates temporary dark/light patches on the nap that are not to be confused with stains.
