Leather & Circles Blank Reclaimed Calligraphy Paper Journal
Handmade journal with leather binding and blank pages. Made from reclaimed materials.
A few years ago, I received a beautiful invitation to my uncle’s 70th birthday. It had these amazing circular patterns. I liked it so much I kept it and knew I would eventually use it to create something. This notebook has 88 sheets reclaimed from an old calligraphy notebook I found at my mother’s studio. I’ve included a picture of the notebook cover for reference. It should give you an idea of how old the paper is.
The binding is sewn with a single wax linen cord and covered with genuine leather tacked to the book boards. The boards are reclaimed from backs of notebooks.
The metal circles are jewelry findings. I have so many of those!!
The closure is improvised with a grommet and leather.
The book corners were actually purchased.
