Antique Oak Brown Leather Journal

Hand stitched leather journals have a magical quality!  Used for hundreds of years, you can feel this tradition when you hold one.

Handcrafted in the style of an earlier era, each journal is a work of art and signed by the Binder.  Read about the Leather Journal story here...>

The Treasured Qualities of a Handcrafted Journal:

  • Strength - the hand stitched pages result in a stronger journal than glued books
  • Flexibility - the soft leather covers tuck easily into bags, pockets and backpacks - unlike hard covered books
  • Easy to write in - pages lay flat - NO spiral bindings
  • Protection - the wrap around cover protects the fore edge of the pages, the wrapping strap helps to hold the cover securely closed
  • Sensual - the feel of a handcrafted leather journal delights the senses.  Soft and flexible to the touch and visually beautiful
  • A Sense of Ritual - the wrapping and unwrapping of the journal is a moment of ritual that many leather journal owners savour
  • It's Your Story - Writing becomes an experience again!  Holding a writing instrument in your hand and making your mark is very personal.

This Handcrafted Journal features:

A5 is a very popular size.  Favoured for it's ease of portability while still allowing plenty of room for lots of writing, sketches, keepsakes and personal style within the pages.
 
Ideal for writers, poets, song writers, travel thoughts, sketches, journal keepers and all those who love to keep treasures within pages of books!  
 
And of course - the perfect companion for sharing your story while sitting under that favourite tree, or discreetly in the back of that wonderful cafe where the coffee is as rich as the constant evolving cast of characters.
 
Antique Oak Brown Leather Journal
This genuine cowhide aniline leather features an antique look in rich acorn browns. It has a classically aged look that devleps more deeply over time. Works beautifully with either Copper or Antique gold coloured binding thread on spine.  A really beautiful leather that creates one of my most popular journals.

    Excellent Quality and Presentation

    Posted by Peta on 3rd Jul 2017

    This Journal was a gift for my daughter's 21st and we were so impressed. The quality and presentation is excellent and knowing that the Journal is handmade made it even more special and something to treasure and keep for the years to come. We had it personalised as well and as my daughter loves writing and reading books, this meant a lot to her. I highly recommend if you are looking for that extra special gift of very high quality.
