This item is a hand tooled leather bound blank book with an Egyptian Ankh embossed on the front cover. Measuring 4-1/2" by 6" and a little over an inch thick, it has 100 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" leaves (200 pages) of 24 lb. Southworth parchment paper. This is an ideal book to use as a journal, a book of shadows, diary, or whatever else you can think of.
The ankh on the cover is deeply embossed and covered in hieroglyphics. The overall tone of the dyed leather as well as the general funkiness in the handtooling, binding and finishing of the leather conveys an impression of great antiquity. There is no metal used in the construction of this book, binding is done with lacing with the lace binding the pages forming a bookmark. The pages do not look machine cut and convey craftsmanship of a pre-industrial era.
