Large Journal #1

Regular price £140.00

A big, fat, hefty, 260 page, totally handmade book for drawing and writing. 

No other series of off-the-shelf handmade (or machine-made) books (that we know of!) contains the volume of high quality paper as these ones have.

No other series of off-the-shelf books are made to this high standard.  

BINDING STYLE & BOOK STRUCTURE

A superior style of binding called Tight-back or Flexible Binding with laced on boards and raised bands.

Tight-back or Flexible binding allows the book to open completely flat without damaging the book; very important when drawing and writing.

This type of structure makes the book incredibly strong and durable. Opening the book flat will, over time, cause the spine to crease but not break. 

Tight Back or Flexible Bindings should not be mistaken for inferior Case Bindings.

COVER

This cover paper is a golden leaf print over turquoise painted paper. 

SPINE

The spine is made from calfskin leather, tanned in Edinburgh, Scotland. wth gold tooling and blind embossing. 

CORNERS - Vellum Tipped

A further example of the craftsmanship and attention to detail these books have been made with, these all feature vellum tipped corners.
