Bound in a single thick piece of vegetable tanned leather this journal has one of our hand tooled designs on the cover. The beautiful antiqued finish is applied by hand to pick out the design and the natural markings in the leather. This makes each book unique and the tone and grain of your journal may vary from the image shown. The covers are held closed by two cords finished with leather beads.
This is our own Green Man design, we have based him on the traditional images that can often be found in church architecture.
The Green Man never goes away, he has probably been with us since the dawn of humankind. He is the spirit of the forest, he represents that part of man that never left the primeval wildwood. In Celtic Europe he can still be found in church carvings. This powerful archetype has many decendants; Robin Hood; Merlin; Cernunnos; Herne the Hunter; Jack-in-the-Green and the Woodwose.
