Tan reclaimed leather art journal with handmade watercolour paper, gift for artist, A5


Rustic one-of-a-kind leather journal hand bound with handmade cold pressed Khadi watercolour paper with a natural deckled edge which is beautiful for use with watercolours, gouache, ink and most other artistic media.

The soft reclaimed genuine goatskin cover in a rich tan shade will keep artwork or writing safe. The journal is tied up with a tassel I made out of  jute rope which wraps around to keep the journal closed. The cover also has a small antique metal label with a beautiful natural patina to which I can add a name or date in calligraphy. The label is actually a very old dolls house serving tray [part of a dolls house dinner set] which I bought from an antiques market in Delhi, India over 20 years ago. I never knew what I would use those tiny pewter objects for at the time, but I knew eventually they would find their purpose, albeit as a label on a journal. 

The journal comes packaged in a cotton book-wrap for safe keeping on the go as well as a black gift box ready to present as a special gift for the artist in your life or anyone who just loves handmade leather journals.
