This is Siena, Cristina C’s pocket sized Janet Leather custom Van Der Spek binder. She took delivery of it almost a year ago, on 26th February 2015. Below is a history in photographs of how it has aged, from February 2015 to mid-January 2016.
The first four photographs belong to Van Der Spek and the rest to Cristina.
In May 2015, a slight accident with a bottle of water led to Cristina treating it with Marula oil
Since then it has not been treated at all, apart from lots of handling and some sun
And it now has a really cute cat embossing, which Cristina did herself. Look at that gorgeous patina and how lovely it looks!
