Towards the end of last year I was approached by a lady who wanted me to make her a leather journal cover.
I was wondering if you could make a book cover with soft leather that has four flaps and has a string that wraps around the cover when closed. I was thinking something that looks like a cross between the Leaf of Lorien and the Owl Post notebooks you made. Basically it is a Leaf of Lorien type cover with two extra flaps and no journal attached.
She specified the details that she wanted on the cover, as well as the size of the journal it would need to house, and then left me to my own devices.
After much thought I sourced some leather that I thought would be perfect, and here’s the finished product:
It’s a very simple design in terms of construction, but it works so well – I sometimes think that simplicity is the key to an elegant product. The design has been burned onto the leather using pyrography.
This is a bespoke piece, but I’m so in love with the finished product that I will be making some different ones today which I will add to my Etsy shop very soon!
