This journal was inspired by a Roleplaying Game, Earthdawn. It is the journal of a wizard, its name is "The Spellbook" and is part of my "Time Series". The artwork on the covers gives the impression of a very old book that is almost ruined after being left in a damp place for centuries. The focal point is an old Celtic Symbol. The finish has been made with several layers of ecological varnishes, to protect the artwork and ensure the vitality of colors for many years to come. The spine is a very soft golden man made leather, treated with patinas to achieve a worn look.
It is bound using strong 3-ply Crawford's Irish linen thread. All the pages of this journal are hand stamped, painted , distressed and decorated by me. The paper used is a high quality recycled paper of 300 gsm, in a very beautiful creamy tone, that makes it look old. It is also acid free, chlorine free and suitable for photos. Its size is 17,5 x 25,5cm ( 7 x 10 2/8 inches).
It is a perfect gift for journalers, mixed media artists, steampunk and fantasy lovers, writers and people who love books. It can be used as a sketchbook, an art journal, a notebook, a spellbook ,a diary, a heirloom book or for every occassion a special book is needed.
"We believe that this Journal was made as a gift to the arch- wizard of the Theran Council from the Bookbinders Guild. Inside, the mage kept his notes for his magical and alchemical experiments, for many years. However, a couple of years before "The Scourge", the wizard's trace was lost, after undertaking a special journey to the peninsula of Barsaive. Many centuries later, the journal was found inside a sealed Kaer, by a party of young adventurers. It was then surrendered to this library and is one of our most treasured possessions."
