Regular price £90.00

A extra chunky 250 page, totally handmade book for drawing, painting and writing. 

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

J&J Jeffery hand coloured lino print on handmade antique paper.

Spine

Calfskin leather with blind tooling along the length of the spine and gold tooling to the head and tail of the spine.

Vellum corners help to protect the book from everyday wear and tear as well as adding a decorative flourish.

Adding these tiny vellum corners is a time-consuming detail; it requires a steady hand, patience and skill.

It's incredibly rare to see this attention to detail in any book, especially a blank journal.
