With the success of my storyteller books, I have decided to make this a permanent in my store. I started making them in 2013, and not one of them has stuck around for long. I make variations on each one, but they usually feature one of my delicious large antique keys. This time around I tweaked the book by leaving the leather uncut on the back, as I liked the rusticity of it - and adding this wonderful vintage backing plate which has a distinct weather beaten appearance.
In addition, I have been working away on 'Botanica' which I have just released into the store. This book features vintage hand embroidered linen on the spine - a design which I adopted 4 years ago, and have continued to flow into the vision I hold for my book designs. I will never tire of this combination.
This particular book features antique paper ephemera from botanical charts and specimens dating around the 1830's. It would make an ideal book for the botanist, herbalist, naturopath or plant enthusiast. There is so much joy to be had, in creating these journals - I am losing myself in them. A larger one is in the making at the moment, in between custom work.
