Just like our leather journal, these wood cover journals have folios, signatures, and book blocks. I made these with a high quality watercolor paper which is ideal for drawing, calligraphy, and watercolor paint.
Woodcraft. I then used pyrography to decorate the front covers with our Antha and Emerald designs. Next, I stained and finished each cover, layering several stain colors for a rich effect.
I started with piercing holes in the valleys of each signature, and by drilling corresponding holes through each wooden cover. I then bound a front and back cover to each book block using the Coptic Stitch. Then it was just a matter of securing black leather around each spine using an Opus catch stitch and adhesive.
Oh, yes! Almost forgot. I used a Gothic script, the same one used for our Shakespeare Scroll and Illuminated Pages, for the optional personalized next on the first page.
And that's a wrap! We're nearly finished with all of our Kickstarter rewards, and new items are in the making! Look for a collage post and sneak peeks soon!
