Description

Share

The front cover print was created using Indian Cotton Rag paper, while the back cover is a repurposed page from a design book. I used liberal pinches of salt in the development process of the wet cyanotypes.

There is a secret message on the back of the repurposed page, which only I have seen, but which you now know is there … It is all about the Nazca Lines, with words from Chatwin and Von Daniken! Perhaps the secret message will bring magic to your writing!!

The inside covers are made using handmade Nepalese Lokta paper in gorgeous airmail blue. The book is stitched together with blue Irish Linen waxed thread.

I used Coptic stitching to bind the book together. Coptic binding means that the book will lie completely flat when opened, which makes it perfect for journaling or sketching.

All of the cartridge paper for the pages is recycled, mostly from old paper cups, and it’s all hand torn. The grey-board used for the covers is also, wherever possible, made from recycled materials.

This book is unique and made entirely by hand.

What is a journal?

It’s your story, your history, your present moment.

It’s a gateway into who you really are and how you really feel.

It’s a place to play and a place to get down to some serious work.

Keeping a journal, whether you do it every day, once a week, or only in moments of strong emotions, (good or bad), can be so many of these things, and so much more. Keeping a journal is meditation, it’s a place where you can open up a dialogue with your inner self, or your inner child, or your inner crazy-person-who-just-needs-to-rant!
