Gift from MattanaMaya No.3: Nautically Lost
The third Gift out of the studio for a friend of a colleague and a business partner-to-be. Upset from the factory-made journal he purchased, the studio offers him a chance for it to be reborn as a semi-handmade one.
Charmed with real leather and nautical accessories, the studio keeps both elements and gets rid of all the rest. Replaced with wornout-looking watercolor paper, the journal is bound with ‘Waterfall Stitch’ by Keith A. Smith using the fine waxed linen thread which will last for at least a century. The pocket at the back, inspired by Molskine’s journal, has been added by the owner’s request.
Real leather with embossed element.
120 pages, 275 grms. Canson watercolor paper soaked in coffee for battered-looking effect
Commissioned for Oreo Mozz
One-off Edition: April 2014
