An extra special little book encased in a brass and glass keepsake box especially made to show off the beauty of its vintage embroidered fabric cover. 

I bound this book with handmade cold pressed paper on which I have painted a light blue colour wash in watercolour on half the pages, giving the new guardian of this special book a prompt to use this space to add a special prayer in calligraphy ink, write their favourite quotes or perhaps add their own artwork to. The natural deckled fore-edges of this journal has tiny flecks of gold leaf which has been patiently applied by hand. The book is tied with a handmade fabric button which I stitched on to a vintage tassel of wool and silk which I bought off an antique rug seller in Pakistan. 

This bijou book would also make a unique wedding guest book for the alternative couple looking for something a little different to document their guests well wishes.

Can be used with most artistic media, takes calligraphy ink and watercolour really well as well as gouache paints. Can also be used with fine tip pigment pens.
