The Blue Celt by Broadsword21 The Blue Celt by Broadsword21
This is a prototype for some styles of books I'd like to make to sell on Etsy. I wasn't happy with the way the paper signatures went into this one, so I've made it my own journal, but I will probably make more along this line. Dyed and painted tooling leather over blue suede.

I do have plans for various colors, but I hadn't thought of purple. I may have to do a book like that.

You should use this for a book! It looks so catchy! I would be happy if I would have a book like this on my shelf :)

I would, but my wife is the writer in the family, not I, but I could probably cover a book this way.

if I wanted to buy this, or something rather similar, how much would it cost?

About $30. I also do customs and commissions if you're interested.

awesome! ^^ I'll think about it, though I'm also saving up for a bunch of other things, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford it, but I'll definitely try! ^^

Aha! Blue is my favorite color! And I am quite impressed by this! I've been looking for a leather notebook for sometime (my old one is filled to the brim) and this gives me hope that there are some pretty decent ones to choose from today. Thank you! :)

Ooh, that's fantastic! The Celtic knot-type things and the blue color with silver trim just made me love it more. :XD:

It is a bit TARDIS blue. That reminds me, I ought to make a journal like the one River Song carries around.
