Big Dark Blue

I'm getting back to loving the chunky weighty journals that have a weight in your hand that is unmistakable.

This is a journal similar to the Big Blue Journal that I have on my website. the difference here is that it's a deep dark almost black blue colored deer hide. It's so soft and smooth it's amazing. I used natural Irish linen thread tosew it up. It's sewn to stations in a pattern of diamonds and wings. The backing paper is a fibery paper that matches the navy blue almost perfectly. It has 340 pages of 24lb Strathmore paper. I love this paper. It's perfect for writingand has a nice tooth for drawing and it will take a lot of abuse- light watercolor washes, glue and it will even handle my fountain pen.

Leslie, Big Dark Blue arrived yesterday, and it's even better than it appears in the photos! This is going to be a great home for my "night skies" essays and stories.

Thanks!
