“I got it today! Amazingly, it took only one week to get the package!

This journal is not what I expected… it greatly exceeded my expectations!!

The nicely embellished clasps, the wings, the dorsal spikes are all well designed and craftsmanship is immaculate. The chain gives me the feeling of Daenerys trying to use it to withhold the dragon and the glass eye seems so alive.

The aged papers look so ancient, and the end paper with the house sigil and motto really top it off.

I am particularly pleased with Alex’s step by step communication and he supplemented with lots of photos so that you knew what was going on.

Alex is obviously very talented with book design. He has a pair of magical hands and a very creative mind. The decoration on the book spine with dorsal spikes and wings was his sole idea!

Am I going to get more journals from Alex? You bet! Watch out this space for more Game of Thrones journals! I am ready when he is ready!”

FRANKENSTEIN, 15 x 10 inches

A jewel of a binder cover…
 
Hand made special commission piece based on the classic Universal picture of Frankenstein 1931. Ring binder cover, made for contract signed between Boris Karloff and Universal Pictures…
 
___________
 
 
We gave a new dimension to this ring binder – a kind of realistic skin feel and touch. Leather has real soft touch like human skin. The cover of the binder also has a very rustic effect encompassing the decaying monster from the film. The skin parted exposing it’s wound – quite perfect.
 
Size of cover is 15 x 10 inches; oak wooden base of cover; specially prepared picture bellow aged glass; hand toned leather; realistic wounds; carved cover edges; a lot of specially aged brass elements; etc. … one of our longest produced project with specially attention on every single detail.
