Upcycled Antique Handsewn Journal, Green Cover - $50.00

Preserve your thoughts, dreams, prayers, sketches, and stories in this beautiful upcycled vintage journal! The cover is from a rescued 1898 Charles Dickens novel that was falling apart and was carefully stitched together with the Coptic stitch. May this journal grace your bookshelf for years to come! DETAILS: The journal is approximately 7x5" and contains 144 pages heavy duty, acid-free drawing paper. I used linen bookbinding thread and the Coptic stitch to bind the signatures together and added an ornamental shoelace knot to the top and the bottom (these are not necessary to the structural integrity of the journal, they just made me happy). This journal will lay flat when opened; when writing between signatures you will see the stitch (as shown in the picture). This is the nature of the stitch and is not cause for alarm. ***This journal will not feel like glue-bound journals. Even with tightly stitched signatures the book flexes a bit***
