Universal Tree of Life Leather Journal by Jen Delyth
The Ancients envisioned the entire cosmos in the form of a tree whose roots grow deep in the ground, branches reaching high into the heavens. The front cover of The Celtic Tree of Life is deeply soul-moving iconic art designed by Jen Delyth and is featured on this 5×7 inch journal. Jen’s art is an ancient and beautiful symbol of the interconnection of all things. The interlacing branches symbolize the Celtic belief in the continuity of life and to some the interconnected branches of generations of family. On the back cover is The World Tree of Norse Mythology, the Giant Ash tree that links and connects all the known worlds, the earth below, and the heaven above. Some folks have written to us stating how the design on the back makes them think of the 4 branches of their own life, youth, middle age and the passage into old age. Approximately 150 sheets (300/2 sides) pages of premium handmade pure linen/cotton parchment paper of archival quality. Brass latch to close the journal, top-grade vegetable-tanned leather. Produced by Poetic Earth under exclusive license.

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.
