Journal of handmade paper with leather cover with an embossing of peacock feathers on front and back. Papers have unique fire burnt edges. The diary contains 144 pages (counting each side) and a unique lock mechanism.
Any paper with a feathered edge is described as having a deckle edge, in contrast to a cut edge.
Before the 19th century, the deckle edge was unavoidable, a natural artifact of the paper-making process in which sheets of paper were made individually on a deckle. The deckle could not make a perfect seal against the screen at the edges and the paper slurry would seep under, creating a rough edge to the paper.
With the appearance of smooth edges in the 19th century, the deckle edge slowly emerged as a status symbol. Many modern readers are unfamiliar with the deckle edge and may see it as a defect, but it's actually a deliberate design.
