“Whispers” Journals – Pair I
The “Whispers” Collection is an act of reverence to the incorporeal guardians of a person, who want to see him or her with a healthy body and soul, stepping boldly into the world and sure in his or her way.
The journal pairs are consisted of two small notebooks filled with 380 pages smooth cream colored paper, excellent for writing with fountain pens or pencils. The dimensions of each journal are 15×10.5 cm or 5.9×4.1 inches.
The book body is sewn with premium linen thread on 3 hemp cords, laced on double millboard covers, decorated with colorful woven endbands with cotton thread and four glass beads each.
Lastly, both journals are bound in the same vegetable tanned goatskin, one left more rugged and tooled in blind and the other lacquered, gilded with 23k gold leaf and set with semi-precious stones.
Both journals are similar and different in many aspects.
The lighter one is sprinkled in brown on it’s edges, following along you can see the endbands embroidered in yellow and brown cotton, and sitting tightly between the threads are the four cyan glass beads sewn in with thin silk thread.
As a somewhat transformed reflection, the darker journal is sprinkled in deep blue on its edges, which compliments not only the blue striped endpapers inside but the blue and cyan woven endbands with warm yellow beads on each side. It’s covers are tooled with silver on the borders and warm 23 k gold leaf on the central decoration which is infused with dark red and blue zircon gemstones. The tooling on the back is done with a more reddish tinted gold leaf, again of 23 karats.
Both journals are inscribed with a whisper in Bulgarian, reminding that perseverance overcomes any obstacle. It reads directly:
