Item Name & Description: This is an original hand-bound blank book, one of a kind. The design is inspired by characters and events in the Steerswoman Series.

The interior paper is handmade by me, from recycled materials.
Although I treated the paper surface for writing and drawing, it’s very rough-textured and quirky. Works well with fountain pen and illustration pens, if you don’t mind a bumpy ride. Colored pencil uses the texture to good advantage. I have not tested for watercolor.
I include extra loose scraps of the same paper, for you to test your inks, pens, watercolors or pencils.
The cover is textured art paper, trimmed with frayed silk ribbon and carved wooden beads. Endpapers are papyrus.
Book size is 4.5 inches x 6 inches (11.43 cm x 15.24 cm)
I include with this book: a sheet of the same handmade paper, printed with a brief tale explaining why this is called the Wood-Gnome Book; and a copy of the British edition of The Steerswoman, in which we first meet the wood-gnomes.
