Moon Kept by AnnEnchanted Moon Kept by AnnEnchanted
For sale on Etsy
286 pages, counted front and back, of 89 gsm archival acid-free parchment shade paper hand sewn onto two large cords. Acrylic painted canvas stretched over heavy bookboard with a closing flap and cords made with my lucet. (Tutorial of cord making). Book measures 15x22 cm or 5.75 x 8.75 and weighs over a pound. Two bookmarks of braided natural shade hemp.

I named it Moon Kept because of the tie. It can be tied in a pretty much unlimited number of ways. I personally keep a journal with a clasp like this, and I tie it all sorts of different ways, for a number of reasons, but primarily because if anyone were to open my book there would be no way they could tie it back in the same elaborate way that I had it. Therefore I always know if someone has been peaking. In this moon journal, your secrets are tied away.

Beautifully done.  I love how you listed the specs, and the fact that you even made the cords.  The design is simple enough to accentuate and not overpower, even though it has all the details of the knots.  Just overall... makes me happy to look at, haha.  Keep up the good work! :)

You are quite welcome. 
Thanks!  That's right, though I originally just took it to mean horse (I was a kid).  Most people just think of Link's horse.
