This coptic stitched journal features beautiful, vintage cactus flowers on both the front and back covers. The covers are made from a repurposed hard cover book and the journal is filled with hand dyed papers. The coptic stitch allows this journal to lay flat when open. There are 10 signatures with 16 pages (front and back) of hand dyed papers in colors that compliment the covers. The pages are dyed using inks, dyes and coffee, and the edges are deckled by hand. There are a total of 160 pages, front and back, in this journal. The journal measures approximately 7 1/4 high by 4 3/4 wide. There are clips on each side, with a sari ribbon to keep it closed when not in use. The clips can also be removed and replaced when desired.
All of my journals are created in a pet friendly, smoke free environment. These journals are lovingly made by hand, not by machine and this means they may not be “perfect”. Their slight imperfections only lend to their charm and uniqueness.
Please note that if you are ordering a journal that has dyed papers, there may be a slight aroma to the pages. Please do not order a journal with this type of paper if you are opposed to this. Also, due to the process used to dye these papers, some of the pages may have indentations or other slight imperfections.
Every effort is made to represent the colors as accurately as possible, but please note that colors can vary by the type of device and display they are viewed on.
