This is the Earthworks Journals A6 brown leather journal with our Holy Grail / Ace of Cups 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 compact size it's a great journal to carry around in your bag or coat pocket. It makes a great personal diary, Tarot notebook, or travel journal to take on your quest!
D e s i g n
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.
