My handmade books are just that - handmade by me - Cherie Gerhardt. Each book is not only unique in its creation, but to its bearer as well. Those who acquire my books use them for many different purposes, whether it be a prayer book, journal, guest book, memory book or spell book.
Each book's creation begins with the selection of one of my art pieces, which is then printed on water resistant canvas. Next, exotic handmade papers are adhered to the cover of the book in order to add a distinctive texture. Inside contains quality natural parchment paper that has been stained and aged to perfection. The book is post bound, so the papers can easily be added and removed. My books are accompanied with a hand-crafted feather quill and a fabric bag for storing.
I take a great deal of time creating these books. Each one is made of quality materials and no two are alike. It is my intention for you to cherish your book as much as I love creating each one. These books are an invaluable treasure meant to be passed down to your love ones for generations to come.
If you are looking for something in particular, I can create an original book to suit your needs. You'll be able to customize your order by making selections from the following features:
• Hidden Photo Cover Pocket

All my books are sold in my Mystic Moon Media Etsy Shop.
