I knew he was going onto a leather journal. But the brand (or scar) in a circle that just happens to look like the moon rising huge behind him was just a happy accident. Really!
Whenever I am pawing through leather scrap bins, I always keep an eye cocked for scraps with ranch brands or scars. I think they give the leather so much more character. I'm not sure what the rough circle scar on this piece was, but I like it.
This little mini-journal has ten signatures of 7 sheets each for a total of 140 pages (280 both sides). It is sewn with a longstitch binding with natural hemp cord. I find I am drawn to these "fat" journals much more than the skinnier ones. (Probably because I always have too much to say... as you might have noticed).
OK, I'm done. Enjoy this book!
