Gutenberg Bible Paperblank Journal

Wonderful Gutenberg Bible Paperblank Journal Special Edition.

It’s rare in the bookstores and museum shops, but it is wonderful to have as a calligraphy notebook or journal! Some of our members already ordered a whole bunch. It has a good quality and a useful pouch in the back. A wonderful present for a fellow calligrapher! It only comes in a ruled version, though.

You can order it here.
