Triskele Journal A6
A6 - 240 pages. Hand dyed black kangaroo leather with silver triskele carved into leather cover, and a 'JS' monogram on the spine.
   The Celtic triskele (or triskelion) is composed of three interlocking spirals. The spiral is an ancient symbol relating to the sun and the continual movement of life. In the form of a triskele the spirals represent the three phases of life - birth, life and death. In modern Wicca the connection here would be to the Goddess as Maiden/Mother/Crone - but let's trace the thread through the origins of Celtic knotwork back to the vikings.
   In old Norse mythology the three sisters of fate are Urd (the past), Verdandi (the being) and Skuld (what is to come). They live beneath the roots of Yggdrasil, the world tree, where they weave the tapestry of fate. Each person's life is a string in their loom, and the length of the string is the length of the person's life.
   The book is sewn in French style and has a spinal insert. Black satin ribbon bookmark with straight diagonal cut. Special purple headbands. Purple silk endpapers.
Cover: 113mm W x 159mm H (4.45 x 6.26in).
Page: 105mm W x 148mm H (4.13 x 5.88in). Weight: 0.330kg (0.73lb).

Quinta Essentia Wardrobe -
The Path in Me

A4 - 424 pages (212 sheets). Hand dyed and polished kangaroo leather finished in purple Oxblood. Hand carved Celtic knotwork leaf designs in each corner, painted gold. Front flap opens to reveal 'The path for me is the path in me' carved in gold letters on inside cover. Two small hand carved Triquetra symbols on the cover and one on the spine.
   The Triquetra (or Triqueta) was made famous by the TV series 'Charmed' and is a Celtic symbol of the triple Goddess (maid, mother, and crone). It can also represent mind, body, and soul, as well as the three domains of Earth - land, sea, and sky. A circle binds the three together as one.
   The term "Quinta Essentia" refers to the fifth element (besides fire, water, earth and air) which permeates all of nature and is the substance composing the celestial bodies - the stuff of stars that links everything together - the soul of the universe. The quintessence is the finest or best of any substance, which is a fitting description for the carved leather range of Witches Wardrobe books.
   The book is post bound to allow pages to be removed for printing a few pages at a time and then returned. The main cover front, back and spine are made from one continuous piece of leather which fastens together with four brass posts (Chicago screws). Antique key bookmark anchored to the cover. Rose elephant hide endpapers.
Cover: 236mm W x 310mm H (9.29 x 12.20in). Depth: 40-60mmD (1.57-2.36in)
Page: 210mm W x 297mm H (8.27 x 11.69in). Weight: 1.875kg (4.13lb).
