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.


Colophon:

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.
