Handmade leather journals weren't something I thought about in design school. Seems a hundred years ago, a time for experimenting and discovery. Not everything got completed. The bright confetti artwork used in this journal was an example of an artist proof that never made it to a ltd edition. But I saved it all those years to discover it works beautifully in this handmade book covered in oil-tanned, dusty rose leather. There remains enough of the proof to complete two more journals, so an edition came in time. The brilliance of couleur never faded and is displayed on both inside covers, hand ripped from that old proof. Another piece is featured in the middle signature. This is likely a journal for the lady looking for that illusive accoutrement to match that proud new ensemble. Or maybe an artist or aspiring poet or young collegian or for no other reason than it's just that damn cool! Have that piece of brass engraved with your mongram
