State Fair Books

These are two handmade brown leather journals with exposed waxed thread stitches. The books have a leather belt with a vintage buckle closures. The bookmarks are old antique Vermont State Fair ribbons from 1916. The books have a first, second and third place ribbon in it.  

One book I used a antique metal ribbon pin bar. It original was for a first place high jump. I used my kwikprint and stamped o pioneers, with silver foil. 

Both books have 240 pages of mohawk superfine paper measuring 8.75"h x 6"w. The paper is acid free.
