Atlantis Shepard's Journal by BCcreativity Atlantis Shepard's Journal by BCcreativity
This is a commission of a journal from the Disney movie, Atlantis-The Lost Empire.
This one took some time to make because there was not much to go off of. A lot of research went into this one to get it to come out as accurate and durable as possible.

It contains over 300 pages of natural parchment and is bound in Italian leather. It is framed in metal and embellished with a gold centerpiece emblem.
The spine is supported by a finial rod that the purchaser had machined to match the original from the movie.
The journal is finished off with a workable clasp, aged and buffed out to a low sheen.

This book looks amazing, congrats! Hope you don't mind my asking, but what technique did you use to sew the signatures? I've been looking at the pictures and I just can't figure out how you got the spine to come to a tight point like that.

ok, so this one was difficult to say the least. I had to do some research to find the best way to successfully bind this without the text block falling apart.
I sewed the text block loose so that when I hammered the spine, I could shape it into the V shape I needed to replicate.

I would love to have one myself. Although I don't know what I would write in it.

This deserves a daily deviation. I can only imagine how much time and money went into creating this masterpiece.

Thank you oh so much. That is very kind of you. It did take some time to create. Lots of research went into this book. I wanted it to be durable and functional while still accurately portraying the one from the movie. Cheers
