Promises Promises

Well, the siding has mostly gone back up on the house but they haven’t finished the porch, where my mailbox is located. fear not! Books have gone in the mail!

Here to fulfill my promise of book pictures are some pictures!

It’s 200 pages of eaton 24lb, 25% cotton cream coloredpaper. The cover is oil tanned sheep hide. It’s awesomely soft but tough leather, dulling razor blades quickly. the sewing is a linking long stitch in a butterfly pattern in unbleach irish linen sewn onto stations. The inner paper is some paper that I keep calling chiri paper but isn’t. (Chiri paper is white with green, gray and brown flecks- it’s also a lot thicker and mroe textured than this paper, whcih I could call hay paper in tan.)I’m pretty happy with this journal. It’s toughand sturdy. It’s also on it’s way to Brad in New york.
