Leather Journal Majestic A5 - RUBY Chesterfield
A Regally Grand Journal of Impressive Stature!
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...>
This A5 journal is of majestic proportions! Featuring 12 holes on the spine, it is double the usual A5 journal size. It makes an impressive statement as a visual artistic piece. And of course is still very functional and will hold a substantial number of words!
Leather journals are 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.
RUBY Chesterfield Leather
The beautiful rich deep Ruby leather is the same that is used to handcraft the classic Chesterfield furniture. It has deep rich tones that are revealed when the leather is rubbed back on areas of wear to obtain that favoured 'aged - well worn look'. It makes for a beautiful journal. Very soft and supple yet strong.
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.
