Exploration by luthien27 Exploration by luthien27
Exploration is yet again inspired by some of my favorite elements, vintage maps, the compass and old world romance where explorers sail into the unknown onto a journey of lifetime discoveries.

This is a mixed media handbound journal. The artwork on the front cover combines paint, paper, a motif of a compassİ, rusty objects and a salvage gear from an antique clock. The page marker is made up of a brass chain and ends with a piece of gold pyrite. The artwork is then aged and distressed. The covers are finished with several coats of satin varnish to protect the artwork.

Size : 6 x 7 inches Covers, 5 x 6.75 inches Inside
Pages : Brown Craft 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.

^_^That would be great later when I muster the finances. Can I get back to you about this? That would be great, I'm sure. I think I want to give something of yours as a present eventually.

I feel like I almost have to turn the circle thingy in the middle of the compass rose, like it's some sort of combination lock, to open this lol
