Book Swap #10 - Buechertiger

Hilke, also known as Buechertiger, created this journal and slip case for our recent swap.

Hilke writes, "brown leather hardcover with paste-downs made of traditional Leipzig patterned paper give this journal a wonderful old world feel. This journal has a nice travel size, and sits in a slipcase for better protection. This case's spine is lined with the covering leather, and the sides are covered with the Leipzig paper. A strip of leather, attached to the slipcase and fitted with a glass bead, helps getting the book out of the case without strain on the book's binding. The books in this series of travel journals are numbered, this is number 10."
