This is a beautiful hand made and bound A5 notebook featuring very colourful Shiba Inu dogs and a contrasting tan buckram band covering the spine. There are 128 blank pages of recycled paper (made from drinking cups!) inside at a fantastic 140gsm weight, so is perfect for writing, drawing and sketching.
The Shiba Inu pattern is made from fabric imported from Japan and then made into book cloth, which allows the fabric to then be used to cover a book. This process is done by hand.
The book has a contrasting stone coloured paper on the inside of the front and back covers.
At the top and bottom of the spine (or the ‘head’ and ‘tail’ as we bookbinders call them) is a hand sewn contrasting endband in a dark brown and beige thread.
Along the edges of the pages is a hand-sprinkled dot design in contrasting brown and stone.
The book is completely hand sewn before it is covered using 100% linen thread which is first coated, again by hand, in beeswax. The cover is then made separately and then the pages and the cover are brought together to form the book.
Because of the very nature of the design of the book, it is a unique item, no two will ever be the same, and therefore would make a fantastic gift for a loved one.
