The book has 8 watercolor pages - using Arches (pronounced "Arsh) made in France. It's the best watercolor paper to use if you are a painter. You could use this book as a watercolor journal. I was also thinking it would be perfect for a garden party as a guest book. Maybe add a paint set to the table for your guests to "paint in" instead of sign in!
The font and back covers have a 300 lb Arches watercolor paper too - just to add a bit of sturdiness to the outer fabric.
Here is a close-up of the tiny peach pearls sewn onto hand-dyed silk from England.
The spine of the journal is tied with green silk.
A shot of the inside back cover. I added some of the original fabric to cushion and soften the inside.
Thank you for looking.
Auf Wiedersehen! Danke!
