Hand Bound A4 Journal with Original Wet Cyanotype Print Covers … Cosmos and Wild Mallow Flowers … Because Your Words Are Worth It


The covers for this A4 hand bound journal were made using original cyanotype prints.

The front cover is a wet cyanotype, created using Cosmos from my garden and Wild Mallow from the hedgerows around my beautiful Wiltshire home. The back cover features lots and lots of Wild Mallows, some clearly showing the sweet little star at their heart. I used a dash of green ink and a few pinches of salt in the development process. I used Indian Cotton Rag paper to create both cover prints.

The inside covers are made using handmade dark turquoise Nepalese Lokta paper. The book is stitched together with turquoise waxed Irish Linen thread.

I used Coptic stitching to bind the book together. Coptic binding means that the book will lie completely flat when opened, which makes it perfect for journaling or sketching.

What is a journal?
It’s your story, your history, your present moment.
It’s a gateway into who you really are and how you really feel.
It’s a place to play and a place to get down to some serious work.
Keeping a journal, whether you do it every day, once a week, or only in moments of strong emotions, (good or bad), can be so many of these things, and so much more. Keeping a journal is meditation, it’s a place where you can open up a dialogue with your inner self, or your inner child, or your inner crazy-person-who-just-needs-to-rant!

All of the cartridge paper for the pages is recycled, mostly from old paper cups, and it’s all hand torn. The grey-board used for the covers is also, wherever possible, made from recycled materials.

This Journal is part of the Artists’ Collection, which means that every second signature, or section, has heavier weight paper, which can be used for watercolours or photographs.

This book is unique and made entirely by hand.
