Its covers have many layers of ephemera and paint on sturdy museum board, to give the feeling of depth that the alcove door requires. At the entrance there are a boy and a girl standing hand by hand. The whole cover is treated with specialized mediums that make it feel like raw glass.
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. It has 160 pages (counting both sides) of Fabriano150gsm sketching paper. The spine is a very soft melange burgundy red man made leather. It is bound using strong 3-ply Crawford's Irish linen thread in white. Its size is 17,5 x 25,5cm ( 7 x 10 2/8 inches).
It is a perfect gift for artists, poets, writers and people who love books. It can be used as a sketchbook, an art journal, a notebook, a diary, a heirloom book or for every occassion a special book is needed.
My original idea is to add the title "stories" in wooden letters. But then I also liked the title "together". So , I decided to let the future owner of the journal to decide which title she prefers. When you buy the journal, please let me know the title of your choice. Keep in mind that you should keep your title, up to 8 letters.
