Description

Most people have a strong connection to books.  I have found it fascinating to hear how and why people love to wear a book around their necks.

 

My mom has been wearing her red leather book necklace for several years now and when people ask her about it an interesting conversation always follows.  She then asks them to sign it and write a word or two – it’s a way for her to collect memories of the people she interacts with.

 

A woman shared with me that she wears her book necklace as a talisman, close to her heart, to remind her of the healing that has taken place in her life. Books had played an important role in her healing journey.  

 

Another person shared that they use it to keep track of all of their passwords. I’m curious to know how you will use yours.

 

This particular wearable book is made from exotic wood pieces given to me by my dear friend Tore Vollan who has since passed away.  You can read more about him in the Exotic Wood Books. 

 

Inside you’ll find Strathmore 400 Series drawing paper, medium surface (80 lb/130 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 drawing and writing needs.  The pages have been aged to give them an old world look and feel.  Each section of pages is wrapped in book cloth made with eco dyed fabric.

 

Hand sewn with walnut Irish linen thread using the Coptic binding method.  Coptic end bands add a beautiful pattern along the spine and also provide overall stability.

 

Antique brass chain measures 31″ (can be cut down to a smaller length if desired).
