This is the Earthworks Journals A5 brown leather journal with our Three Hares design hand tooled onto the cover. It is bound in a single thick piece of vegetable tanned leather and has a beautiful, antiqued brown finish which picks out the design and natural markings in the full-grain leather; this makes each book unique. The covers are held closed by two tie cords finished with leather beads.
With its versatile size it's a great journal to either keep at home or carry around in your bag. It makes a great personal diary, travel journal or notebook. The Tinners' Hare design makes it perfect for those with an interest in folklore.
D e s i g n
This is our version of an ancient symbol known as the Three Hares. It's a design that has been found all across the world and as far east as China. It has many examples in the South West of the UK in church architecture where it is known as The Tinners' Hares or The Tinners' Rabbits. The origins are shrouded in mystery but it seems to have had significance in pagan religions and medieval Christianity, possibly because of the symbolic nature of the number three. It acts as a visual puzzle as each hare has two ears, but only three ears are shown.
