Hardcover leather journals are great for writers who record their thoughts on a daily basis. Entrepreneurs, business people and students will find the medium and large sized journals with lined pages a perfect way to help stay organized and take notes. Larger sizes with blank pages work extremely well as sketchbooks for artists and other creatives who like to draw their thoughts.

Crafting Marbled Paper

Marbled paper has been produced in the same painstaking way for centuries and the Italians are masters of the craft. The "Marbled" or "à la cuve" design is thought to have originated in Japan or Persia and has been used in Europe since the 16th century. This technique, which requires great precision, reached its apex of development in Italy. A basin is filled with a gelatinous, vegetable-base liquid and surface-sprayed with different colors. While the colors float on the surface, the craftsman moves the colors around using combs or wooden rods. This creates marbled images that spread and blend together on the liquid’s surface. When the pattern is completed, the papers are gently placed on the surface of the liquid without disturbing the design. Only a few seconds are necessary for the paper to absorb the colors and the decoration is completed.
