This handmade notebook is beautifully soft to the touch. The pages were folded and stitched by hand directly into the cover using waxed orange linen thread. The cover is made from burnished red-coloured genuine leather and bound in the medieval long stitch style. The leather inside is lined with Japanese hand screen printed Chiyogami paper and the book is closed with a leather thong to which you can attach a charm. The paper inside the book has a distressed antique look. When the book is open the pages lay flat, making it very comfortable to write in. This would make a classy present for a loved one and would comfortably slip into a back pocket or bag.
It has 180 pages of 100 gsm paper.
Dimensions: L7.2 x 8.8 cm
In keeping with this style of binding the fore edge has not been trimmed.
Leather is a natural product which ages beautifully with time and wear. As with all natural products there may be minor natural variations which are part of the unique nature of the piece of leather.
Thanks for looking at my notebooks and don’t forget that I can make books to your own specifications and personalise the covers – just get in touch for a quote.
