This is a side view, as you can see it has got quite fat.
View from the opposite side with opening catch. To hold the pages shut, ribbon and chain with a padlock depicting women chaining themselves to iron railings, on cutting the chains they where thrown into prison, to contemplate their audacity to think they could be equal to man. I have also threaded on a enamel label with the word 'Journey' as this was an amazing journey in history
This last page and the front cover, is constructed from an old book cover plus the spine which hides the mechanics of the journal. A small shadow box nailed down with tacks houses a vintage silver button with knots for the joining of women supporting each other in the fight to win the vote.
I hope you enjoyed this journey with me on honouring these brave and gutsy women.
