“The last I saw of Count Dracula was his kissing his hand to me, with a red light of triumph in his eyes, and with a smile that Judas in hell might be proud of.”
– Bram Stoker, Dracula
Special made, large leather journal in 8 x 10.5 inches with thickness around 3.3 inches. The front cover plate has vintage – looking portrait of Dracula surrounded with a lot of deep embossing and gilding. Leather is hand toned and aged with special bookbinder mixtures.
The book block has 300 leaves (600 pages) of special, thicker, cream toned vintage paper type in 100 gsm paper weight. Though only 100gsm, paper is very quality that can be used with pencil or ink. The inside cover – endpapers are marbled parchment which gives it a nice touch. The gilded and aged paper edges all contribute to that authentic vintage look. Real lizard leather stripes adorn the cover placing an intrigue when opening and discovering its beauty…
From customer review about paper type:
“… and the paper, while listed as 100 gsm, is absolutely not bleed-through at all – I’ve used a fountain pen, a quill with India ink, and even a Sharpie!!!!”
