I listened to a podcast recently where the tagline was "Sit Coortum Proelium," or "Let the battle begin." (Podcast here). Well, that basically screamed at me, "MAKE THIS!" So I did.
It's about 3.5x5.5 inches, so not a large one. Just a prototype. But if I can keep the chaos to a minimum today, I'll be making the bigger version (5.5x8.5).
Here's the write-up from the store:
"Let the battle begin."
This is the first of the new line of fully leather notebooks. (As opposed to the versions with the wood backing). Made with realy 6oz cow hide and treated with to kinds of antique gel oil (tan and mahogany), sealed with a matte acrylic finish, it's going to last a long, long time.
For this particular notebook, I laser engraved the designs and hand-stamped (tooled) a texture on the front side. The look, I believe, is fantastic. If it doesn't sell I'm keeping it for myself!
The engraving, “Sit Coortum Proelium,” was the inspiration for this particular cover. (Let the battle begin.) I imagine this piece and it’s soon-to-be created bigger brother, can be used for jotting down all those things necessary for our daily battles. The prayers, thoughts during prayer time, and, of course, all the mundane to do’s of life that make up so much of the actual daily battles.
Once the inventory level drops to '0,' it's gone, but I'd be happy to make a new one for you. Just note that it would not be *EXACTLY* like this one.
