THE FAMILY JOURNAL
The Keeper of the Family Story!
Reminiscent of the value of the 'Family Bible', I have created the Family Journal to capture and preserve your family's story.
Ideal for the major milestones: Births, Deaths & Marriages, but also the magical 'smaller' moments that define a family and are so often overlooked.

Many of us find the process of researching the family tree and preserving a family history a rather daunting prospect. Start with the here and now! What is happening in your family today? In our age of technology, it has never been more important to honour and capture the uniqueness of each individual in a tangible form that can be picked up and felt. A book has long been treasured for this function.
The 120gsm archival papers ideal for handwriting or to hold printed pages, photos or family keepsakes. Ideal for those who wish to capture handwriting and create detailed artistic pages, or for 'keeping it simple' and printing from the computer to add to the journal.
Treasure your family's story and create a Family Journal.
Handcrafted in the style of an earlier era, each journal is a work of art and I sign each one discreetly on the last page as authentification of my work.
The Wrap Around Cover protects the pages and results in a strong, yet soft and inviting journal.
With the hand binding displayed on the spine, topstitching around all edges of the cover, and 256 pages of hand folded, Australian Made Watermarked Archival paper, these journals are made with tender care by the Binder to be treasured for many generations.
