Medieval - Modern Journals

I recently dipped into my treasure chest of vintage buttons and made a couple more medieval-modern style leather journal / sketchbooks for my Etsy shop:






The one above is make with black elk hide, and has an jazzy olive green Art Deco button from the 1920s-1930s on the front cover.


This one is made with sea foam green deerskin, and has an elegant button from the 1940s-1950s on the front cover. I was watching The Big Sleep the other night, and could just picture Lauren Bacall writing down her dark family secrets in this book. :D

Drawing Wonderland, I'm not sure whether or not that stitch has a name. I saw examples of it in books on medieval bookbinding, and decided to try it out.
