Wooden Coptic journals

Alder wood journals. The first was for my sister and is stained to resemble Mahogany. Alder wood however has a luminesent quality to it under natural lighting and is a very beautiful light wood to work with.
The 2nd book was for my dad. it has a lighter golden stain with purposful dripping patterns.
Note: Knothole window. The viking is a sort of fun, family symbol. Our ancestry is danish and we have a collection of carved wood vikings. the first page painting is one of these. Foredge also has gouche painting

Okay, the viking through the window is sweet.
