Hand stitched travel journal

One big love of mine is making books from scratch. Often they’re hand sewn like this one which was made to take on my summer holiday in France…

I still have pages left but that’s ok as I’ve a trip to Portugal coming up soon so no doubt it’ll find it’s way into my luggage.
