The cover of this book is very simply designed with the tree illustrations against the brown suede. I think it works well as it does not over power the many details of the book; the binding, the elastic tie, bookmark, the double fold out cover, the hand torn paper. All of these details create a tactile physical book which is exciting in itself before any content is created. It is an artwork in itself. I really like this idea for the hand torn paper, not all perfect but the book is made to a good quality.
'Filled is this softcover journal with acrylic-stained paper, hand torn and carefully bound with strong linen thread. The paper is smooth and takes all writing instruments and will also work great as a sketchbook for dry media'
