This is a unique leather travel journal. It is 100% handmade, hand punched and hand sewn by myself. When I was travelling I wanted a journal that could also be a safe place for all the knick-knacks I collected on my journey, this is the result!
The front flap has pockets sewn into both the front and the back. On the inside pocket there is a pocket which fits cards. As all the pockets are sewn onto the front flap the blank pages in the journal will always lie completely flat no matter how much you fit into the pockets.
The leather strap which keeps the journal closed has also been designed to secure a pen or pencil to the front of the book.
The leather used is a medium weight, black, cow leather which will age beautifully with use.
However other colours are available in my shop.
The journal's pages are sewn using long-stitch binding with very strong 18/3 orange linen thread and closure is a strap of the same waxed leather used for the journal.
There are 200 blank pages (counting both sides) of natural White Fabriano Accademia drawing Paper at 120 g/m2 which is acid free and age resistant. This paper is ideal for writing, sketching and drawing with dry mediums. There are 5 signatures (sections) and each page has been hand torn giving the book a beautiful deckled edge.
Please note that the first and last blank pages of the journal will become slightly marked by the black leather dye used for the cover.
approximately 15.5cm by 12cm cm b y 2.5cm

It is perfect for the artist on the go, I do kind of wish the leather strap was a leather cord, otherwise its excellently crafted and the paper is nice and thick for watercolors. If you do make it in landscape, I will definitely be back.
