A Medieval Blank Book & A Contemporary Blank Book For You!

A couple weeks ago we looked and noticed we have over 1,000 followers on Instagram!  While compared to other small businesses this is not a huge number of followers, we're totally happy about it.  We thought it would be fun to make a couple of blank books to give away to show our appreciation for your support.  

We love Instagram because we can find like minded colleagues, hobbyists, fans, and friends!  It is so fun to see what other conservationists are working on, what other book binders are making, etc. . .  We think it is even more amazing that everyone in this community supports each other!  

This giveaway is different than the usual giveaways seen around Instagram.  We're not recruiting for new followers, we simply want to give these books to our current followers.  To enter for the drawing, comment below the image posted on Instagram as to which journal you would like:  The full leather Medieval journal or the naturally-dyed book cloth contemporary journal.  The only catch is you can't write "both".  If you've commented your name will go into the hat, and we will draw a name for each book. 

Take a look below at more detail photos of each book! 

Medieval Blank Book Stats:  Sewn on raised cords, laced in boards, covered in book leather, hand dyed in cordovan leather dye, hand tooled in a Medieval time period design, hand sewn end bands, braided leather head bands, velvet paper covered doublures with blind tooling around the inside turn-ins, and a hand printed / aged bookplate.

Contemporary Blank Book Stats:  Bound in 100% cotton that we dyed in Sumac leaves, and made into book cloth.  We bound the book in a cased in style and hand printed the design in pochoir on the spine and boards, hand sewn end bands, with a hand printed bookplate.   

We'll do the drawing August 3 at 10:00p.m. and post the winners on Instagram!

Good luck guys!
