Nordic Raven and Skull Leather Journal
The Raven was once considered by ancient tribes to be a messenger from beyond. A symbol of strength, intelligence and endurance the Raven appears as the ancient thunderbird over the tree which brings forth new life and over the skull which symbolizes rebirth through death by both physical and spiritual means.

Individually hand painted 2 toned.

The art of Coptic binding is an age-old technique almost 2,000 years old. It remains one of the most durable forms of bookbinding known. Coptic-bound books hold your journal pages far longer than any modern book-binding method. Artists favor this stitching technique, which enables your journal to lay flat when opened, allowing for easier drawing or writing.
Each Poetic Earth journal has roughly 150 sheets of heirloom quality handmade linen parchment paper that passes the strictest of PH-acidity marker tests. Internally sized with the professional artist in mind for watercolours, fountain pens, pencils, ballpoint pens and just about every type of artistic media. The smooth texture makes this wonderful to write on and its archive-quality manufacturing will ensure that whatever you put in your journal will last a lifetime.
