A hardbound journal in a B5 format, measuring 7 x 10 inches with 108 ivory pages. The grained cover combines a toile de jouy pattern with a pagoda portrait framed by a gilt fillet. With reversed toile endpapers and an ex libris, gilded page-ends and a scarlet ribbon page marker.
The journal’s interior spreads feature twelve full-page illustrations of fantasy pagodas, one for each month of the year. Undated, so that the journal may be used as a diary, journal or guest book.
