This Chinese Harmony Mountain Scrapbook portrays the Santa Cruz foothills in California. I received a photograph from which to design the mountain range for the custom book cover.
The Chinese kanji character for Harmony and Peace accents the lower right corner, embossed under brown leather. Most importantly, the landscape art represents the peace felt wandering through the scenic foothills.
The mountains are 7 levels thick, descending lower into the background. A razor blade was used to carve the valleys and ridges of the mountain peaks. Smooth brown leather wraps around the hills on the rustic leather book. Likewise, suede blue leather forms the backdrop of the sky. In addition, green leather wraps around the spine, edged by copper wire.
Ivory handmade paper lines the inner covers of the Harmony and Peace Kanji book. Especially relevant to the nature book, yellow flower blossoms embed in the handmade paper.
Speckled off-white acid-free pages fill the book, handsewn around the two leather cords at the spine.
Handstitched headbands sew directly into the spine ends of the Chinese Harmony Mountain Scrapbook.
55 tensile strength fabric lines the hinges under the leather and under the handmade paper. Specifically, this adds important extra strength to the joints for heirloom quality.
