Item details

I think of this journal as a book-of-shadows, a book of spells or a 'grimoire' in the Pagan Wicca tradition. The cover is handmade from vintage buffalo hide and is colored a very very dark brown, with a natural dye that is derived from tree bark. It contains 100 pages/200 usable sides of plain, unlined 150gsm cartridge art paper.

The cover measures 9x5.5 inches (22.5x14cm), which means it is about the same size as A5. It is an ideal size and shape for use as a traveling journal, and the tough binding will survive many journeys in the side pocket of a backpack! This is a tough and durable book that would make an excellent traveling journal, sketchbook or personal diary. The folios of paper are stitched into the leather cover with a traditional 'Italian' stitch - a style of binding that guarantees a long life. The paper is suitable for drawing, sketching or writing in many media, including gel, Biro, pencil, water color and fountain pen.

I love working with leather, but for ethical reasons I only use vintage leather for my books- ie leather from working animals that have come to the end of their lives.
