Luscious yellow-ochre leather with a hermit crab's claw stitched into it! The red leather of the claw is a bison hide, tanned to a color that I call "blood orange". Supple, pebbly AND it smells good.
This journal was included in January's "Symmetry Series" (a limited edition series) because hermit crabs are one of the few living species on this Earth that doesn't have external symmetry. It has adapted to have one claw larger than the other for evolutionary benefit! I thought it is noteworthy to understand that even though symmetry is the underlying language of the universe, sometimes it whispers to its opposite and invites it to come out to play!
