The book is about 4" x 6" and is a hardbound coptic stitch book. I used an Ethiopian coptic stitch with waxed brown linen thread. The paper on the cover is an embossed leaves paper that was bright white. I tea stained that paper, as well as the inside paper, which is Mohawk Superfine 80lb Smooth paper. The book is still completely archival as I buffered the acidic tea with sodium bicarbonate. (I have a blog post about that in the works!)
The button was from my sewing box (a lost button from a sweater) and I braided linen thread as the tie for the book. The thread shows through on the inside of the book to add to the handmade feel of it. The waxed thread was left long in the back as I like to curl it and give it extra design qualities of it's own.
It's a unique book but I plan on making some similar to it to add to my Etsy Shop and one for myself since I love it so much.
