Today I continued work on my gifted leather journals. This time I made a small batch with some thick brown leather.
On these books, I used a Keith Smith binding called Triple Parquet. I modified it a little bit, so it’s more like a double/triple parquet.
The closure for these journals is a leather cord that wraps around the book and tucks in the front.
I wish I could remember the person who gave me the leather. If you’re out there, come by the studio – I’ll give you one of the journals you inspired!
