Giving broken-down Canadian books new life, this Ontario artisan creates beautiful one-of-a-kind journals. Elements of old books, including covers, pictures or pages, are given special attention in these new handmade books, perfect as a sketchbook or journal, and made using the centuries-old technique of coptic binding. Durable Irish linen thread binds 80 blank pages of 70lb acid-free text paper into this pretty piece and allows the book to lay flat when open. These are truly unique and authentic gifts.
Size: 9" x 6 1/4".
The Artist/Designer: All things books. That is Hannelore’s self-proclamation of her life in a nutshell. Or bookcase. She has studied them, written them, edited them, and helped illustrate them. Now she makes them by hand using elegant coptic binding and hand-ripping every single page to give it a luxurious deckle edge. “ I make these durable, beautiful, and practical vessels for you to be inspired by and to capture your own story.” Hannelore’s books are carried across Canada from Newfoundland to British Columbia and Cedar Lake is pleased to offer them to you.
