One of a kind, Handmade in Vermont by Lindsey Julow and Shaun Varney

This Wise Tortoise is a great size to take with you wherever you go, measuring approximately 6" X 4 1/2" X 1".

Why limit what you can do in your book with lines. If you have trouble writing in straight lines (like me) I suggest using a ruler to draw faint pencil lines, writing in pen and then erasing the pencil lines. Then it looks like you write in beautiful straight lines.

When the snap is opened you'll find heavy weight parchment looking paper that is slightly textured. It's 65 lb paper so you can write, draw or perhaps even paint with almost anything you want. You'll have 72 pages to work with (144 sided). I can also send along a sample piece of paper to experiment on if you want to test before you use the books pages.
The decorative stitch is done with a beautiful colored linen thread, and is my favorite part about these style books.
The beautiful Antique Finish can be rubbed with a soft cloth if you want to renew the shine.
