In on-trend shades of blush and deep pink this bespoke handmade Flamingo journal is a great gift for scribers and scribblers who deserve something special.
The flamingo illustration is an original design, taken from my watercolour and ink drawings. I've placed it on a blush pink background to give it some added warmth.
The handmade book is individually crafted using the coptic binding method. It has a robust hardback cover with the flamingo motif printed on textured gesso paper. The A5 size book has 80 plain pages (160 sides) of high quality 120gsm paper. It is finished with ribbon so you can tie the books pages shut after you've finished using it for the day. The inside cover features a wonderful flamingo pattern.
Coptic bound books are made using a hand stitched binding method that dates back to the fourth century AD. The book's spine is exposed, leaving the ornate chain stitch binding visible. You can also open the book to a full 360 degrees or lay it completely flat without risk of damage to the spine.
Every book is made to order and can have a personalised message in the front page – simply state what you would like to see on that page when you place your order.
All products are packaged with a protective cellophane cover and are gift wrapped with tissue paper and ribbon.
I recently created this flamingo illustration to work as a stand-alone print. Later, when I was working on a flamingo repeat pattern design for fabric and paper I saw how well the motif worked on a blush pink background and a seed was sewn.
I really wanted to see both the print and the pattern featured on an 3D object - as a book-binder I had the solution in my hands. I'm so enjoying using my book that I want to make one for others to they can have a unique version for themselves.
