Clearance! Originally $54.
With its heavyweight art paper, landscape orientation and pen loops, this journal is ready to be used creatively. Add a couple pencils and you have the perfect gift presentation!
This blank book is covered in rusty orange Italian book cloth with a nice sheen to it. The book closes with a chocolate leather lace wrapped around a deep teal beach stone button. There are two adjustable pen loops on the front cover to hold your favorite pens or pencils. The stitches on the spine are done in nutmeg waxed linen thread.
The book is filled with 30 sheets/60 pages of Stonehenge 250 gsm paper in a pleasant warm white. This paper works well for pencil, pen and ink, light watercolor and mixed media collage. The long stitch binding not only opens fully so you can use the book easily, but it allows extra space to accommodate collage materials.

I've been hand-crafting books since 1998. I cut every piece of paper and board myself and hand fold every page. I am picky about materials, even those you don't see like book board and glue. Each book is made individually with great attention to detail and signed inside the back cover. Thanks for looking!
