the ARTISTS COMPANION in leather and velvet
I'm so excited about these large leather journals. I have made these mostly on Commission projects, but decided this time to share the love :o)
The ARTISTS COMPANION is a treat for writing, sketching, light painting, and journaling, with spacing to allow for inclusions and paste-ins.
It is designed to fit into a satchel, backpack or painting box. It is wrapped securely in leather for protection, and hand longstitched in waxed thread.
Turquoise velvet ribbon ties the textblock in
Patterned 110 gsm endpapers to firm the covers,
in either 'Balloons Away', or 'Stargazer'
Exposed longstitch along the spine in turquoise linen thread
White textblock, 6"x8.25" in size, 1.5" thick,
spaced slightly at the spine to allow for inclusions,
with landscape orientation
Hand made with manual tools and skills
in the Old Schoolhouse, Napoleons, Australia.
Know also that your purchase of this handmade gift is support for a traditional skill in Australia that deserves preserving. I am dedicated to Binding as an honest, traditional, valuable craft, and to preserve a family heritage of binding into the future.
You may have this personalized too, for $5 extra, with a custom printed bookplate for the front cover and some extras for your other books.
