  • (Antique Book) not an accepted term, and one which no book collector or bookseller should ever allow to pass his or her lips.  It is a phrase both jarring and meaningless, and you will do a great service to mankind if you will immediately make a point of correcting any unfortunate soul who uses it.

  • cosmetic: serving an esthetic rather than a useful purpose; "cosmetic fenders on cars"; "the buildings were utilitarian rather than decorative"

  • (decoratively) in a decorative manner; "used decoratively at Christmas"

This image has been digitally edited in order to make it as close to a clean black and white line art as possible. Some grey haze and other imperfections might remain. I do try to clean them as well as possible but since I often have multiple images to clean up I don't spend too much time on each.

Marie Antoinette Vellum French Journal with brown ribbon completely handmande as a antique book

Marie Antoinette Vellum French Journal with brown ribbon completely handmande as a antique book

This blank book can be used to write a journal, drawing, make a travel book or a guest book or as a decoration that will bring a French touch to your home.
The vellum is tainted to obtain the touch of an old vellum book and the pages are colored to give the color of an old paper (90 g/m2).
For the handbands I use two colors of threads sepia and brown same colors than the fore-edges.
The book is closed by a brown decorative ribbon with black Marie Antoinette Text, French Royal Carriage and a fleur de lys ".

This book will look better and better with time and will last hundreds years. Think of the pleasure when your children or grandchildren will still have this journal in there hands…

The book size is: 10,2cm x 14cm (4"x 5.6")

The journal has: 68 pages(136 sides).

This book is chemical free, no pets and no smocking!
