Briar Roses - Handmade Coptic Sketchbook

I've recently become completely obsessed with bookbinding, and I'm so excited to share this small collection of handmade sketchbooks made with antique re-purposed covers - each one features a botanical-inspired Art Nouveau design.

This particular journal/sketchbook is bound with natural waxed linen, and features a fragment of gorgeous 18th-century brocade rose trim as a tape. For the end papers, I used a golden, handmade Lokta fern paper.

The sketchbook is filled with 72 pages of individually hand-torn, 90 lb drawing paper. The coptic binding allows the book to lay completely flat.

Perfect for writing, drawing and possibly light watercolor. I hope you'll create something you can treasure.
