Priscilla asked me to make two journals. Both are approximately 21 x 15 cm (8.26 x 5.9 inches) and have 400 pages (800 counting both sides) of cream Tomoe River paper.
This is the first journal.
She asked for a Ethiopian style with black leather and the word "Reverie" gilded and the butterfly gilded underneath.
A nice characteristic of this journal is the true nerves showing on the spine.
For the endpapers, she asked for a marbled paper in blue or purple tones. After sending some pictures to her, she went for this one.
For the second journal, she checked my Etsy shop and liked a particular journal. It is an Ethiopian style, too, but instead of full leather it is half leather.
The leather is brown and the paper is a Bomoart paper which represents some shelves full of books.
Here you can also see the nerves showing.
She asked me to gild a fleur de lys on the spine, however due to the nature of the structure of this journal that is not possible. I suggested I could put full leather on the back of the journal and gild the stamp in the middle. Some books in my shop are made this way, except instead of leather they have cloth. She agreed to this, so here it is the back of the journal.
For the endpapers, she asked for a brown paper. I haven't got brown marbled paper, so I showed her a paper I got in Barcelona. It is a handmade paper from India. She loved it, so I used it.
Anyway, these journals should soon be in her hands. I hope she likes them!!
