Leather-Bound Celtic Cross Journal
This Celtic Cross Journal is really neat! Everyone in the office wanted to run off with my samples when they arrived! Measures 5″x7″, and it’s about an inch thick. It has very old-fashioned, rough-cut, hand-bound pages. The pages are leather bound and cannot be refilled or replaced. They are rustic, handmade and unlined paper pages. Neatest of all, the leather cover folds over and it closes with a brass clasp!
Really nice embossed Celtic Cross and knotwork on the front, with knotwork pattern embossed on the back. Each book is hand-made and has its own unique character.

History Behind the Celtic Cross
The Celtic Cross is a symbol that originated from the high crosses found in Ireland dating between the 9th and 12th centuries. The cross itself stems from the Latin cross, however, the addition of the ring connecting the limbs of the cross sets it apart. Stone workers added this ring in order to support the arms of the cross and provide a longer lifespan to the stone structure. This design rose in popularity during the Celtic Revival in the 1800s. During this time, people began to refer to it as a “Celtic Cross”. You can see that this product is decorated with intricate interlacing that imitates the ornamentation found in early illuminated manuscripts and on stone Celtic crosses.
