“Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on … “

This mixed media handbound journal is a commission piece influenced by one of my older works ‘Je T’aime Forever’. The side panels are reprinted from a collage of turn-of-the-century postcards from Germany. A beautiful, ornate escutcheon and a hand-sculpted red clay heart make the central assemblage, accompanied by an old barrel key. The covers are aged and protected by several coats of Varnish.

Size : 6 x 7 inches Covers, 5 x 6.75 inches Inside
Pages : Off-White 110gsm paper, 256 pages counted both sides
Covers : Mdf
Spine : Leather/Denim, medium-soft
Thread : Beige Nylon
Style : Single Long Stitch

*This journal comes in a sturdy and beautifully made box.

hi there :) this is already sold a long time ago. I can remake one, but I don't know if I can still find the same keyhole component. Gimme a note if you want to discuss about it.

It doesn't really matter to me what keyhole you use, so don't sweat it. The overall design is "spellbinding" though. Is there a chance you could give instructions on how to build one (as detailed as possible) for myself?

I do have an upcoming online class in June that teaches how to build a book just like this. But on a different cover. If you'd like to check out the class it's on www.artfulgatheringevents.com . Just click on session 1 , the class is call "the Looking Glass."

How much does a book like this run for? And if I need to commission it then how long would it take to make?
