Book Art

“For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them.” 

― John Milton

All of my leather books have removable Journals or Sketchbooks inside them. This allows you to simply replace its contents whenever you wish. This also ensures that you will have no fear of ruining the book if you write or draw something you later regret. Just take the book out of the cover and put in a new one. 


Journals come in 2 sizes,

- Small 6.5" by 4.75"

- Large 7.75" by 5"


Sketchbooks also come in 2 sizes,

- Small 8.75" by 6"

- Large 11.25" by 9"


Replacement Journal Inserts can be purchased from Office Depot or on their website. Replacement Sketchbooks can be found at most all Art supply stores or online. Just search for the brand name on the book. 


If you see a design you like and would like to make an order, Please contact me with its number and any changes you would like made. Please know that not all elements used in the creation of previous works will be available, so please allow for some creative license on my part. 


If you would like to order a Book cover sized to a book you already own, please provide "Exact" measurements of the book: height, width, and thickness, as well as if it is a hard cover or soft cover.
