Paperblanks Book of Kells
Coptic Bound Journal
This unique journal features artwork from the Book of Kells, the ancient illuminated manuscript of the gospels. The Book of Kells is one of the most splendid Western manuscripts to come out of the Middle Ages. The book comes from a tradition that arose in Ireland, Scotland and northern England. A memento pouch inside the back cover provides a space to store paper treasures.
The handstitched binding method – also known as Coptic binding or chain stitch binding – was first developed by the early Christians in Egypt as far back as the second century. Centuries-old techniques are employed here to create a journal that is truly unique. The handstitched book represents quality and timelessness. Rich, earthy cover papers and the open spines will delight the true book lover.

I have been trying to get one of these fine out of print journals for years and now we have three. Don’t wait these will not last long. They are in excellent condition with light wear and have not been used or written in. Out of print since 2003, about 16 years ago.
Paperblanks started in 1992 and they have made many fine items. I am looking forward to getting one of their new Safavid pencil boxes soon.
