Mim's Knitting Frenzy

Burgandy Wrap Journal

Specs: 4.25" wide by 6.25" tall by .85" deep. 80 sheets or 160 pages if used front and back. The pages are blank for sketching or writing.

This book i covered in a slightly textured burgandy Canapetta bookcloth. This sturdy cover material makes for a long-lasting book even with daily use. The end papers are a handmade pink paper with burgandy inclusions (a better picture of the paper can be seen here). A beautiful pewter-colored 'North Star' button and matching burgandy satin ribbon create the wrap that keeps this book closed.

The binding is a coptic stitch in waxed linen thread, which is great for journals, as it will lie completely flat or even fold around. This journal would be good for anyone to jot down thoughts at odd moments. It would also be good for a travel journal as once the wrap is done up, it will stay closed in a backpack or luggage and the pages won't be damaged.

Cost is $17.00 including first class shipping to contiguous US States (if you want Priority Mail, it will be extra).

PAYMENT INFO: I accept paypal. If you are interested in International shipping, I can do so, but it will cost you more (as I'm sure you're aware) and you should e-mail me and NOT pay by using the paypal button.
