This natural fiber journal, handcrafted by Balinese artisan Komang Sulaksana, features a pandan leaf cover, cinnamon and grass cord binding and 100 pages of rice straw paper perfect for jotting notes, memories, dreams, drawings or poetry. The artisan relishes in the challenge of melding different mediums, relying on both his artistic talent, and on natural fibers, for all of his work. "Creating new designs is so much fun for me," he says. "Arranging different kinds of materials together is not a hard thing to do but, of course, it requires patience and skill."
This book is a treasure! Far more impressive than the photograph for the quality of care in every aspect of its construction. I got it as a gift for my partner as he tells wonderful stories of his childhood. Though he does not journal, I encouraged him to use this beautiful book to write those stories that they may be enjoyed by his children and perhaps grandchildren some day. I am an artist in the US, graduated from a well known art college. Freshman year, the Calligraphy class required that we create a book from scratch, including end papers, binding, cover etc. It took a month of serious effort and I am proud of my creation, but easily admit that this book far exceeds my own. It is simply beautiful.
