BURL SKETCHBOOK / JOURNAL
The covers for this collection of books were all cut from a Russian Elm burl. The wood grain is exquisite! The pages have been hand cut individually to follow the natural contours of each of the covers and then hand dyed in a tea bath to accentuate the natural wood grain.
PAPER TRAITS: Strathmore 400 series drawing paper (80 lb/118 gsm). This paper works well with graphite pencil, coloured pencil, pen and ink, marker, soft pastel, mixed media and oil pastel; perfect for all your writing and art ideas. Each group of pages is wrapped in a cover of Strathmore 400 series cold press watercolour paper (140 lb/300 gsm). Himalayan Lotka paper with dried flower inclusions have been laminated to each of the cover pages.
Hand sewn with Irish linen thread using the ancient Coptic method of bookbinding; a structure that allows for each of the pages to lay flat for optimum use. Leather strap and antique brass pin provide a closure.
