This is a big fat, 400 page hefty book for drawing and writing.
The covers are waxed with palm wax and polished with an agate which acheives a wonderful glossy surface. The paper is English (Payhembury) marbled paper which has been made on antique, 18th century handmade linen rag printers waste paper.
The binding is based on a recreation of a "speed binding" which was the style used for binding records of the Houses of Parliament - hence the texture seen on the covers. Fear not - this book is beautifully crafted.
The spine is made with natural calfskin and has gold tooled raised bands and blind tooling along the borders..
It contains a 400 sides of laid, tobacco brown paper by Hahnemuhle for drawing and writing. The paper is perfect for ink, pencil, charcoal and pastel.
The foredges are deckled and look and feel wonderful.
