Carte Varese is a Florentine paper made using 17th designs to make beautiful acid free paper. I used the blue and red paper with a purple cloth spine.
This is a small hardcover journal. I chose blue card stock for the endpapers to bring the colours together. Inside is a Canadian white, 32lb paper. This paper has a nice smooth finish. It's a pleasure to write or sketch on.
I sewed it together in a French stitch using white, waxed linen thread.
