Gørsimi - Blackwood Leather Grimoire

Gørsimi - Blackwood Leather Grimoire

from 180.00


Gørsimi - 'Treasures' in Old Norse and the inspiration for this epic tome. This journal has been designed from the highest quality materials available today, with the finest grain recycled tasmanian blackwood covers, solid brass hardware, and hand cut and dyed kangaroo leather.

Tasmanian blackwood (Acacia) is a cousin of Koa. A fine breed of Hardwood which has been sustainably grown for the finest musical instruments. Recycled offcuts from instruments made in my family studio have been used for the covers in this spectacular piece, they are highly figured with fiddleback three dimensional grain.

Sustainably sourced kangaroo leather sourced from outback Queensland, has been cut by hand, dyed, and conditioned with my own specialty blend of byron bound leather balm, which is included free with this journal to keep the leather fresh and supple. This can also be used to polish the timber.
A unique closure system makes use of fine quality solid brass d rings, button snaps, and rivets to attach the leather to the timber cover, and allow a tight double closure.

Within this epic tome we have 160pgs of recycled bright white 105gsm parchment. A pleasure to write upon with zero bleed when using fountain pens.
This tome is bound with waxed hemp thread using a traditionally accurate Coptic stitch based on original codex bindings of 2000 years ago. The binding allows any page to open completely flat, allowing pure ease and freedom of movement to fill up the entirety of every page with your stories and drawings.

This tome is finely crafted to order over 2-3 weeks. As a completed product you will have a traditionally unique modern day relic which is 100% sustainable with all Australian materials, made to order just for you.
