JOURNAL #66 - This is a OAK Hand Stitched Journal and there is not another one exactly like it on the planet! ...This blank page journal is hand crafted by Australian Book Artist Jean Hall and is also Signed and Numbered by Jean.
Lovely OAK Handmade journal or guest-book stitched on cords by Australian book artist Jean Hall.
The covers are cut from plywood The front of the journal is decorated with couching hand embroidery,
handmade beads, metallic gold beads, gold cord, french knots and fabric cuts.
Spine cords are crossed at the back for added strength (as show in the illustration below) and in the photos.
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.
