This beautifully crafted journal/notebook/sketchbook has a mixture of various papers inside. Each piece of paper is measured to size and the arranged in small groups known as signatures. Each signature is sewn to the next. Each signature consists of a variety of papers suitable for writing and sketching. The pages inside are 10 x 15cm in size and the cover measures just a little bigger. It will fit into a jacket pocket or small bag which makes it perfect for writers and 'journalers' who like to carry a journal with them at all times.
Carefully I dis-assemble the book trying to keep the end papers and cover intact. The pages are kept and used either within the book or for drawing supports for my artwork. Because of the used, old feel of the journal it makes it so much easier to carry around and not worry about it getting marked or scratched, it only adds to the aged character of the book.
I've always found such charm in old books, on frequent visits to a local second hand bookshop I noticed such a vast number of unwanted books forever to spend a life stuck on a shelf till rot finally embraces them. I wanted to give them a new chapter to bear but still with keeping that charm and the history they have collected along the way. I hope now that they can be loved once more, now with a different purpose, one that you can make your own.
