Dude, you do some really nice work. Is there any way I could order an A5 sized book from you? I'd like to do an ink journal and think this would be a great way to do it.

Very nice, too. But I am still stunned by those cranes on the previous page.

 

Wow, again.

What is the paper like? I've never heard of it. I was going to commission a TR paper book, but now I'm curious about this paper. :)

Erm ...

 

The YUZEN paper (Japanese) is used on the covers , partially .

It's not the writing paper in the bookblock.

 

The writing paper in the bookblock is still TR paper.

TMLee those journals are beautiful, but that word is inadequate to describe the quality of your workmanship.

Thank you for your kind words :-)

Darn! I was hoping that you were going to open my eyes to a whole new world of paper as awesome as TR! No such luck. :P

 

PMing you!

Writing paper is

NATURALIS Vanilla White , 135gsm, Smooth

Total 112 writing pages

 

A very sturdy bookblock becos of the heavier paper.

 

 

The fabric is denser quilting cotton print.

It doesnt deform or stretch quite so easily.

I was pretty impressed.

 

The printing is high quality , look at the detail of the print ...

@TMLee That is really superb. I am still saddle-stitching little card-covered jotters. I wish I could create something so gorgeous.

 

 

Thanks LizB

making your own jotters can be very fun too ...

 

I did this last nite ...

Might contain useful info in there ...

I'm not a Star War's fan but I really love the grey/white/black & red colour combination. I'm seriously tempted to order another of your beautiful journals with those red fly-leaves, bookmark and stitches, with a contrasting grey print cover of some kind. Stunning!

My favourite - maple leaves ...

http://i1339.photobucket.com/albums/o704/tmleem4/JOURNALS/2016/YUSEN%20RED%20LACQUER/DSCF3642_zps9dnmfmmk.jpg

 

These are actually done in the tradition of those beautiful Japanese red & black lacquerware ...

 

These are the only 4 that ITOYA carried

I believe the range of designs are wider ...
