Square Leather Sketchbook / Journal: Oxblood & Tan with recycled cartridge paper

Size Guide

£99.00 GBP

This Leather Sketchbook or Journal is bound in finest Oxblood leather with Tan exposed spine stitching and a paler Tan leather thong to close. Inside are 192 pages of 140gsm all-media recycled cartridge paper.

I used the 15th century Longstitch with Linkstitch binding for this beautiful softcover book. This is an archival binding which will last your lifetime (and beyond). This style features exposed stitching along the spine, which is not only decorative, but also functional, as it allows the pages to lie flat on a desk. This makes the book a very practical choice for working at home, in the studio or on your travels.

The Oxblood leather is truly exquisite, being warm and smooth to the touch, supple yet robust and with a fine grain pattern. This is a very beautiful yet practical small book that will be much appreciated by those who value heritage craftsmanship and natural materials. A colophon on the final page gives binding, maker and materials information for authenticity. 

SIZE: pages are 14 x 14cm / 5.5 inches and have clean-cut (not torn) edges. The overall book dimensions are 15 x 15 cm / 5.9 x 5.9 inches.

DELIVERY: in stock & ready to ship, worldwide.

NOTES: this is a sample produced whilst designing a comission and is therefore offered at a lower price than usual as the final design differed slightly.
