Beautiful Coptic Journals & Book Necklaces From Reclaimed Materials by Peg and Awl
Husband and wife duo Walter and Margaux Kent, from Peg and Awl (previously featured here) have a deep fascination for history and antiquated objects. The Philadelphia-based couple utilizes floor joists that once belonged to 1800s Philadelphia area houses to construct their wooden pieces.
Their bookbinding pieces are created from reclaimed leather and wood to create a contemporary design with vintage materials. Encrypted with excerpts from literary greats, including Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Anais Nin and Roald Dahl, each Coptic journal is hand-stitched with antique flax linen upholstery thread. The reclaimed wooden Walnut covers are composed of line-free Strathmore drawing paper – thick, hand-torn, acid-free pages that work perfectly with ink, pens both thick and superfine, pencil, charcoal, and a myriad of other mediums, which makes it ideal for sketching or writing.
The miniature book necklaces are also constructed from reclaimed leather hand-torn, hand-stitched, and contain line-free Strathmore drawing paper. Get the book here!
