This blank book features a postcard of William Blake’s painting, “The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun.” NBC Hannibal fans will recognize it immediately as one of the series of Blake paintings that play a significant part in season 3.
This book is perfect for documenting your Becoming.
Rich purple bookcloth, marbled endpapers, a purple ribbon, and creamy blank pages ready for sketches or words or maybe something else.
Your purchase of this book will help me pay for my trip to Fannibal Fest in November. Thank you so much!
This 5.25″ x 8.5″ journal’s blank pages are roughly 5 x 8″ and heavy enough to write on in ink without bleeding through, but thin enough to put lined paper behind the sheet you’re writing on and see them so you can have lines when you want.
This hardcover journal was hand-bound by me in my home workshop, using acid-free Mohawk Superfine 70# text paper, quality bookboard and other materials, and a mix of PVA and methyl cellulose adhesives. It will last a lifetime if treated with a modicum of care. It has 80 leaves, which is 160 pages if you number each side of each leaf. My home is smoke-free.

I had a great time binding it, I hope you’ll have a great time filling it with your thoughts, dreams, and plans!
