Pelagic books produces skillfully crafted books made from salvaged, recycled, and naturally-made materials and a sea of creativity. Each journal begins a new journey in the vast expanses of your imagination as you leave your trace within its pages.

 

Hard cover books are carefully stitched together with a Coptic binding. This decorative technique allows an open book to stay open and sit flat. Leather journals are enveloped in an array of supple covers. The heavy archival papers within are suitable for the outpouring of ideas from artists and writers.

Each treasure is unique. Those that have already emerged into formation can be perused and purchased here. Otherwise, please find me at craft shows for a complete assortment of available items.
