Journal 37 - Wood covers with lots of beads

Very special books, for very special people!
You are bidding for the Signed and Numbered Journal pictured below

Handmade tubular shaped beeds are mixed with wood beeds.
Beeds add spacing between each signature
Lots of hours went into the making of this very special journal.  The pine wood covers of this journal are gouged at the edges to give an old worn appearance. I added lots of wood beads mixed with handmade beads in neutral earthy colors. The small brass plaque on the front cover is inscribed with the word "DREAM".  The pages or signatures are cleverly spaced with beads so you have lots of room for your book to expand when you add photos, clippings and the like. This journal would be lovely on display on a coffee table. The 16 strings of beads feel lovely in your hands and are nice to play with. A very special journal for a very special person.

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 comfortably flat
which is a wonderful feature when writing, gluing or sketching and also strengthens the spine.


224 Pages - Cover Size: (14.5 x 21.5 cm) (6 x 8 3/4 inches approx.)
This book is numbered and signed

Beeds add space between the pages for adding photos and scraps.

  1. This is one of my most favorite journals. Will hate to part with it when it is sold.
