You cannot find off-the-shelf books of this quality anywhere else in the world because no other bindery makes them. These books take months, not weeks or days to produce.
Entirely handmade in Scotland by J&J Jeffery, two of the most imortant (and increasingly collectable) craftspeople in world whose work is held all over the world including at the Met Library in New York City.
Full Leather Journal
This deceptively substantial elegant book has been bound in a Scottish tanned black leather with blind tooling to the front and rear covers, the spine and the edges of the cover boards. The leather for the covers, already beautiful will age wonderfully.
Blind tooling is a pattern created with heated brass tools in the same way as gold tooling but where no gold leaf is used.
The foredges have been sprinkled in red.
