YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): (none)

Examples of my work: the piece on offer is shown here.

This is a handmade, hardcover blank journal, 192 pages. Height is 5 3/4 in. or about 15 cm. Width is 5 1/2 in. or about 14 cm. The decorated egg in the photo is just to give a sense of the size, not included in auction.

The text paper is Somerset, from England, 100% cotton rag. The cover is Chiyogami paper from Japan. The text block is hand-sewn and has a hollow-core spine, so the book opens flat. All the materials (paper, sewing thread, binder's board, book cloth, and adhesives) are acid-free, archival quality.

I will pay for shipping.

Starting bid: £20.

Thank you! I am only a novice bookbinder but this is the first hardcover method I learned and the one I've done most often. It did come out very nicely.
