*Covers and end pages created with handmade leaf print paper from India
*8.75 inches high by 5.75 inches wide
*180 pages of lined 60lb writing paper, which is fountain-pen friendly
*Hand bound with linen thread
This one-of-a-kind hand bound journal contains 180 pages of white acid-free 60 lb lined writing paper, which is fountain-pen friendly. I used waxed linen thread for the Coptic stitch binding, which creates beautiful exposed braids on the spine and allows the pages to lie flat when the book is open, making it comfortable to write in.
The colourful handmade paper on the covers and end pages is created at Auroville Papers in southern India. Leaves from the Bauhinia (orchid tree) were soaked in different dyes and then pressed on the handmade paper, leaving behind colour and texture. Auroville Papers uses 100 percent vegetal fibres for making paper and promotes the economic and social progress of its employees, of whom more than 70 percent are women from local villages.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If you would like to order a customized book, please contact me.
To make the pages for my books, I fold one long sheet of paper in half so that it turns into 4 pages when you count both sides of the page. So a book with 176 pages of writing or drawing paper contains 44 sheets of paper folded in half. And a sketchbook with 88 pages of watercolour paper contains 22 sheets of paper folded in half.
I use Canada Post and will ship your order promptly – often on the same day I receive it – but I can't guarantee how quickly it will reach you, even if you have select ed expedited shipping.
