Samarkand

Another of the imagined places journals. Samarkand, which still exists today, lay on the silk road between China and Europe and I can think of nothing more exotic than that. This is another hand painted cover with an eastern design modelled into it, hand stitched text block of course. A nice, chunky book. More pictures in the listing in my Etsy shop.
