Gorgeous OOAK Handmade journal or guest-book stitched on cords by Australian book artist Jean Hall. The covers are cut from plywood The decorated panel on the front is covered with dark blue fabric and a padded crochet granny square added. The granny square is beaded and soft like a little cushion with the padding. 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.
This is a OOAK Handmade Journal and there is only one like it on the planet!
