This is a unique, one-of-kind, artisan-made blank book that can be used as a sketchbook, diary, scrapbook, journal or guestbook for you or a garden/flower-loving friend.
The papers are art papers by Fabriano and Goldline, 200 gsm, hand-dyed using tea and plant dyes; French dictionary pages circa 1860s, handwritten French letters, 1902; reproductions of Redouté flowers; handmade ecoprints; vintage accounting ledger pages; and maps. Pages are hand-sewn into a vintage book cover. On the back cover is a pocket containing a mini-book of eight vintage ledger papers in a mulberry paper soft-cover for taking notes. Throughout flower and plant-related embellishments. Book fastens with removable ribbon. This is not so much a junk journal as a messy sketchbook with pockets – and it is deliberately messy, in the hopes that it will jumpstart your creative work and silence the dreaded inner critic. (You know the one I mean.)
There are 60 pages for a total of 120 sides. It measures 7 ½” x 5” (18cm x 12cm).
