Custom Made Journal 01

Custom Made Journal 01
This book was custom made as a recipe book and diary for a one year stay in Chile.

Some of its features:
brown goat skin cover, concertina on spine, binding on raised cords (icicle by Keith Smith), raised cover design. It also has Coptic headbands. - I wouldn't have added that if my customer had not wished for it, I must admit, but I am rather happy with the outcome!

A beautiful object. When I buy a good journal ( Rook's Books I love ) I sometimes find them difficult to write in...I feel the writing has to live up to the beauty and sensuality of the volume...I often feel disappointed at my poor words in such an elegant container.

I hear every now and then that people feel like they can't write in my journals because they don't want to waste them with ugly writing - or variations thereof. I can understand the sentiment, and have felt it myself from time to time.
But it is sad to think they will never take the plunge. A blank journal is a nice thing, but if it should stay blank all the time, that is sad.
And if you think your handwriting isn't nice enough, or the writing not meaningful enough, or whatever - take a look at (your) old journals: Usually a filled journal is beautiful just because it is a testimony of a life lived and time spent with it.
