Double Dragonfly

An Etsy customer of mine requested that I make him a double thick journal so that it would last a bit longer than the ones of average thickness. This is what I came up with:
It’s red Italian linen with a marbly orange, red, and gold endpaper. The text paper is a soft cream color which goes nicely with the warm tones of the endpaper.

I made it doubly thick, as promised, and added two black dragonflies to the front cover. I doubled the thread, using a yellow and white thread to make the binding more interesting.

I’m really happy with the way it turned out. Custom orders are always so much fun. They force you out of your routine and that can be very inspiring.

I hope you like it!
