Cover - Authentic Vintage India Map

Authentic and vintage world map sourced from collectors.

Back Cover & Spine

The back cover and spine is made from handloom cotton. The cloth is made directly from raw cotton in the villages close to cotton fields combining traditional Indian principles of cloth-making with modern small-scale technology. It avoids baling and un-bailing of cotton by heavy machinery and unnecessary transport. It has a beautiful texture, is soft, and keeps its shape for ages. Handloom weaving is today the largest non-farm employer in the country, and mostly rural at that. Each region has its particular weave, and that's the beauty of handloom. 


Paper: 100% wood-free and recycled from cotton rags, handmade in rural village units.

Please note: There may be minor imperfections in the textile as it is handwoven on looms and on the papers as they are handmade from recycled cotton rags. These imperfections are natural and add beauty to the product as each piece is unique.

About Art Journals

An art diary, art journal or visual journal is a daily journal kept by artists, often containing both words and sketches, and occasionally including mixed media elements such as collages.

These books contain rough workings, sketches and doodles of ideas later to appear in finished works, as well as act as a normal diary, by allowing the person to record their day-to-day activities and emotions. 

Many famous artists are known for their art diaries – the sketchbooks of Leonardo da Vinci are probably the best-known example. Other artists to have used art journals include Frida Kahlo. The concept of an art diary is also used by people working in related creative fields such as music, photography, design, architecture, etc.
