Did someone say ‘vintage ledger’? We hope so… we all love them, we all want one, so we search near and far to secure one only to find that there are few and far between. Well, search no more! 7gypsies captured the essence of the old ledgers, vintage books and old journals to keep your memories, your art and your thoughts together. How do we describe the new, we mean ‘old is new again’ books? AMAZING… the detail, the thought put into each one, the quality… shall we go on? So, here are a few things you might want to know about the new collection…
- The books were inspired by books, ledgers and journals of the past.
- The inside pages are all printed to look nice and old, but on great quality paper.
- The papers are printed on 2 sides, so you can use both sides, making the number of pages twice as many as the number of sheets in each book for which you can craft on.
- The books were designed to lie flat making it easier for you to paint, draw, sketch, write, glue or do with them whatever you wish.
- You can remove pages from all of the books, but to some them you cannot add or move the pages depending on the book style.
- Look for fun details on the inside of the books like postcards, inside cover book art and even a few envelopes. No two books are alike and each one is designed a bit differently.
- The books range in size from 5″x6″ to 12’x16,” giving you a nice big range to choose from.
- There are 9 different styles in the first collection.
- Each piece of art – both inside and out – was designed by the gypsy team and we love every detail.
- You can leave the covers as is or style them up.
- The books work amazingly with the new Architextures collection of products, but you can be free and use them for anything you wish…
