Traditionally hardbound in a light tan brown coloured leather; this chunky sketchbook features a large hand-tooled illustration in copper-coloured foil. Positioned on the left, and occupying around a diagonal half of the front cover, the illustration shows the right-hand side of a large fern leaf (possibly Athyrium species).

The book is designed in a contemporary gothic style, bringing together modern materials with 12th-15th Century characteristics such as prominent raised bands on the spine and thick boards. This is a highly flexible binding that will open fully back upon itself, allowing for comfortable use in a variety of environments.

Inside, you’ll find beautiful hand-marbled Italian endpapers in deep greens, gold and white; two satin ribbon bookmarks – one in brown, and one in green; and 96 pages (192 sides) of the Bindery’s 150gsm Drawing Cartridge. This is a cream coloured paper with a slight tooth, archival age-resistance, and excellent environmental characteristics.

    This is an exceptional quality journal! I think the copper foil is very unique on its own, and the handmade details stand out and feel superb in the hand. I feel inspired just holding it!
