Handmade Journal with Original Wet Cyanotype Print Covers … All Manner of Daisies … Because Your Words Are Worth It


The covers for this A5 hand bound journal were made using original wet cyanotype prints.

The front cover was created using Zerkall “Antique” wavy paper; the back cover was made using a repurposed page from a design book. I used wild Oxeye daises for both front and back covers, along with a couple of jolly Osteospermums from garden. I used a pinch of salt in the development process.

The inside covers are made using pale 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 handmade paper used in making the covers of my books was purchased from the awesome tornedgepaper shop

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 book is unique and made entirely by hand.

£30 + £4.00 postage and packing.

Your book will be wrapped and sent Royal Mail 2nd Class signed for (unless you request differently)
