This is the last creation in my Victorian Monster Series.
The Journal is 8x10.5 and filled with 292 hand numbered pages of Parchment.
A five cord spine with hand sewn head bands and rich red hand marbled paper with a web design.
I used black napa leather and inset a red Black Widow hourglass shape of Italian goats leather.
Embellished the journal with a Victorian Steampunk design and hand painted the finishing touches.
The red silk bookmark ribbon is attached to a chain at the top and anchored with a real black widow encased in an oval resin gem.
Finally I lightly coated it with paraffin wax and buffed it out.
