|OAK journal with rag doll and two love hearts on front cover panel.|
This blank page journal is hand crafted by Australian Book Artist Jean Hall and is also Signed and Numbered by Jean.
The covers of this adorable journal are cut from plywood The cover panel is covered with off-white colored upolstery fabric. ...I also attached the cutest little rag doll to the cover. The doll's head and body are attached firmly to the cover but her arms and legs are movable. Her tubular bead socks and sleaves are royal blue with just a hint of sparkle.
I also added some red and royal blue pony beads to the ends of the jute string spine cords (6 cords), and two small felt hearts ... one red and one royal blue.
Spine cords are crossed at the back for added strength (as show in the illustration below).
The unique method of stitching that I use to bind my journals evolved from the coptic stitch
and involves stitching on cords leaving an open spine.
This allows each book to open comfortably flat.
This is a wonderful feature when writing, gluing or sketching and also makes the spine stronger.
All pages are white bond blank paper with no lines.
This book has 192 pages.
