Traditionally hardbound in a light tan brown leather; this medium-sized chunky sketchbook features a hand-tooled illustration in silver-coloured foil. Positioned at the bottom left corner, and occupying almost a diagonal half of the front cover; the illustration shows a single, short stem of Crimson Flag (hesperantha coccinea) with three flowers in the centre and a taller “sheaf” of unopened blooms.

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, shaped 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 beautifully printed pottery-blue endpapers with a small white floral pattern; a satin ribbon bookmark in silver-grey; 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.
