Personalizable leather blank book, with optional custom title page
This book is one of my favorites. It is carefully crafted in the traditional way, with pages sewn in place, snugly and securely, with strong waxed linen thread. The spine has grooves cut in the leather, so that the exposed stitching can be recessed into the leather, to protect it. I think the grooves give the spine a beautiful texture.
The front page can be what is shown in the pictures, or it can be a custom image and text. The poem in the book that's now on my workbench, the one in the pictures, is that most famous of Dylan Thomas' poems, "Do not go gentle into that good night."
The button is a hand-made, hand-fired ceramic button, with a coffee-bean texture, made by my wife, the ceramic artist Fay Jones Day ( https://www.etsy.com/shop/fayjonesdaytile ).

Like most leather which has not been processed to death, the leather of this book has some imperfections -- minor scuff-marks, mainly.
This is a *very* durable book, made by a craftsman with decades of experience.
Because of natural variations in leather, the book you receive will look somewhat different from the book in the pictures.
NOTE: The hand-made bamboo ink pen in the last image is *not* included.
