Gorgeous handbound book by Benjamin Castro

I love Benjamin Castro’s shop on Etsy. His books are all one of a kind and considering all the work that goes into them, not pricey.

This is a solid 9×11 unique cobalt leather journal with archival parchment paper for the text block.

  • The inside end-sheets are a custom marble design and the spine is hand sewn and supported with four strong cords. 
  • Hand sewn end-bands and a matching cobalt ribbon bookmark.
  • The capped end is open so that the new owner can customize.
  • The covers have inlays and blind tooling.
  • Buffed and aged for a great nostalgic feel.

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my creation. I truly appreciate it.
    You are the best.

  2. Superb – but if one had a fine notebook like this one would feel that the contents should match. On a bookbinding course I made a photograph album with a slip case but it remains empty. I can’t decide which photographs are good enough for it 🙁
