Description 

This journal is not a stock item, when you buy this book we will be making it especially for you, this takes time! Please see our shop home page for our current dispatch dates.

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.

design

The Grail is The Sacred Vessel. It has had many incarnations throughout history - the magic cauldrons of Celtic mythology; the cup used by Christ at The Last Supper; the vessel that contained Christs' blood; the ultimate quest of the Arthurian romances; the Philosophers Stone and the more recent theory that it is the bloodline of Christ. In the Tarot it is represented by the Ace of Cups. In all of its guises it represents the quest for spiritual knowledge and union with The Divine.
For our design we have chosen the traditional symbol of the chalice. The rays of light emanating from it represent the light of spiritual wisdom. The encircled cross symbolises the union of Earth and Heaven, the point of equilibrium, and the spiritual rebirth that takes place at that union.

16.5cm x 11.5cm x 4cm (6.5 x 4.5 x 1.5 inches)

Approximately 300 pages (600 sides) of A6 sized, unlined, recycled, paper.

The pages in this book are hand bound using a strong waxed cord. No glue is used, so the spine of the book cannot be broken, our binding is strong and permanent.

paper

We're proud to say that this award winning paper is 100% recycled from unbleached post-consumer waste, which saves water, energy and trees.
It is a natural, off-white, oatmeal colour with faint flecks. It has a matt appearance, is slightly textured and it takes most fountain pens without 'bleeding'.
It's of archival quality which means that it will last for hundreds of years. This is great if you're planning on leaving your words for future generations!
