Description

This one-of-a-kind handcrafted 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 covers are original ecoprints of lilies and cosmos flowers grown in my garden on watercolour paper. Ecoprinting – also called botanical contact printing – is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. Every print is unique and all the colours come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints. My one-of-a-kind book covers are nature’s watercolours.

Handcrafted with love by Peta Bailey in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
