Distressed Pigskin Journal Bound Adventure Notebook Leather Sketchbook Turquoise Gift

Distressed pigskin journal, truly bound with 100 hand torn pages of Stonehenge fine art/watercolor/printmaking paper. This is the paper I use for editions of multi-run silk screen prints. It's capable of recording most any medium or instrument of your choice. So choose your weapon! Oil pastels, conte, watercolor, gauche, pen & ink and on an on (whatever). This journal will accommodate you. OK, about pigskin: super neat, rugged, durable, water repellent and snake proof. And cool looking. This is a bound journal with me in mind. I'm an outdoorsman, fisherman, hunter. I spend time on this alluvial bayou. When I take a journal out on the water, the duck blind or to set lines . . . it's bound with pigskin. Not a manly man alive who wouldn't want this journal. Or one similar. maybe bigger or with more pages or something personal laser jet printed on the inside cover page. Let me know. I'll make it for you. BTW, that hand cut & polished copper keyhole has a beautiful turquoise patina
