Rustic journal with natural pine timber covers. The edges of the covers have been gouged to make them look old and worn then they were antiqued and then finished with a bees wax product. Six pieces of bamboo are straped to the front cover with old leather pieces which are attached with upolstery tacks. Two strings of wood beads fall from the spine... simple but effective. The spine cords are double crossed at the back of the book. this makes the book hold firm and keeps it from being floppy. Also provides added strength. The pages open flat for sketching writing or pasting. A lovely earthy journal for someone very special.
The particular method of stitching that I use to bind most of my journals evolved from the coptic stitch and involves sewing on cords leaving an open spine. This allows each book to open completely flat which is a wonderful feature when writing, gluing or sketching and also strengthens the spine.

When I list the number of pages in a book, I am referring to one side of each leaf. For example, in a book with numbered pages, Page 17 would be on one side of the leaf or piece of paper, Page 18 on the other side. Therefore, a book with 224 pages would have 112 leaves.
