Beautifully handmade sketchbook 'Green Floral' by Anna Webber, featuring a handmade green floral paper on the cover.
The intricate hand binding is visible along the spine, created with green waxed cotton thread to match the cover paper, using the Coptic stitch which means the book can be laid flat when working in it. This special book also features eyelets giving it a really beautiful finish. The back and front covers are made with 2.5mm greyboard for a hardcover and have been sanded on the edges before covering.
The inside pages are made using 170gsm Artway Flatwhite paper, which is made from recycled papers and coffee cups, giving some interesting and unique marks and blemishes that you don't find with cartridge paper. It has a slight rough texture which is perfect for sketching with pencils and soft media and even a very light watercolour wash. There are 8 signatures (128 pages).
This is a beautiful handcrafted book and would be great for that special project, it would make a wonderful journal or a perfect gift for your artistic loved one. Comes wrapped in blue tissue and natural twine and has been hand-stamped by the artist with an individual code on the tissue, showing that this is a one off piece.
Please note the paper used for the cover is a handmade paper. Therefore, due to the processes and materials used to create these papers you may notice marks and flecks running through it, which give this beautiful book a truly unique look.
