When I started working with leather 12 years ago, one of the very first things I did was to add custom, hand-branded, inscriptions to my pieces. I was the only one doing it at the time and the method I use, writing every inscription entirely by hand, gives my work a rustic, handmade, soulful, and very special look. The inscription on this travelers notebook is a set of GPS coordinates of your choice - where will yours point?
The color of this piece is antique black - it's a black wash that is applied over the tan of the leather, allowing some of it to show through. Most people think it looks like a dark brown in person. Because leather is a natural material and these are hand-dyed, some variation is to be expected.
To make this piece I start with a vegetable tanned tooling leather leather then cut, brand, paint and dye it by hand before applying a protective coat to keep it safe from the elements. I then add the elastic ties by hand.
MULTIPLE INSERTS: Want to carry more than one notebook in your journal cover? No problem! I hand-make each piece to order so I can add more bands for you. Just leave me a note in the "notes to seller" with the number of notebooks you would like it to hold and I'll customize it at no additional cost
