Hand-bound journals covered with an indigo dyed traditional Japanese clamshell patterned fabric.
The artist uses an ancient stab binding method called Koki Toji or Noble binding where the binder stabs holes along the left edge of the book in a straight line and then sews thread through the holes to both bind and decorate the book.
Journals can be used in either a horizontal or vertical layout. They also work for both right and left-handed writers, and the covers are created with a double-bend feature that allow books to lay open on their own.
Each journal measures 9in x 6in and is filled with 36 sheets (72 pages) of blank, heavyweight drawing paper. Pattern layout may vary slightly from photos.
