This heirloom journal is indeed a beauty. Made entirely from scratch (no recycled covers or binding) it measures in at approx 9" X 6" with a hardcover and curved spine, five hand-sewn signatures, with close to 200 pages. Pages are an eclectic mix of tea and coffee stained paper, antique book pages, vintage ledger paper and sheet music, and modern designer cardstock. Handsome charms add fun to this amazing one-of-a-kind journal. Truly a treasure to be cherished and past down for many generations. I created this journal with the techniques shown in Nik the Booksmith's course on teachable.com.
