One of very special pieces made in our workshop. A lot of carving, some changes in work technique and the size (read weight) make it difficult to made. The symbol is made by customer tattoo.

Leather bound blank book in size of 10 x 14 inches. On front cover plate, dominate an exquisite hand carved symbol based on the customer tattoo. Its hand carved from thick leather, hand toned, canned with special bookbinder’s mixtures, gilded and aged. Book cover plates has gradient levels with many layered applications, embossing, carvings – over all, specially designed to be unique book.

The book block has 175 gsm heavy weight, blank marbled parchment paper. The producer of the paper is Italian company Fedrigoni. The high-grade paper does not bleed through and is exceptionally smooth to write on. The gilded and aged paper edges all contribute to that authentic vintage look.

Customer was waiting to finish the book few year… Hope it worth it.
