When I arrived home yesterday, I found a card in my mailbox stating that the mailman tried to deliver a package but, seeing as no one was home, he held on to it. I knew exactly what the package was. It was something that I had been anticipating since the first day I saw it online – my replica John Wilkes Booth diary! I filled out the postal service card to give them permission to leave it on my stoop, and I rushed home today. I knew from all the emails, pictures, and collaboration between Pasquale and I, that I was going to really like the diary. Even though I had seen pictures of the diary throughout the entire process and helped Pasquale replicate the inside of the diary page by page, with the actual product in my hand, I am still completely amazed at the craftsmanship and detail in every stitch and every page. I’m extremely excited and it’s time to show off my John Wilkes Booth diary:
So, I’m on cloud nine right now. If you would like to join me, you can order your own diary for $400 + $25 shipping. I know it’s a sizeable amount of money, but trust me, it is absolutely worth it. Pasquale has made a very unique and very detailed replica that is second to none. I’d be happy to photograph any other part of the diary and post it here if it will help you make your decision.
For those of you ready to take the plunge, email me at boothiebarn (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll send you information on how to send money to Pasquale. Update: Pasquale is all out of John Wilkes Booth diaries and will not be making anymore. Thank you to all who supported his hard work.
I have a Booth diary!!!!!!!!!
