The Aussie Travel Journal

The Ideal Travelling Companion!

Includes a Travel pocket for phone, momentos, tickets, keepsakes or ...

The same great qualities of my classic handcrafted leather journal but specially designed with a handy traveller's pocket.

The Aussie Travel Journal benefits:

  • Inside 8cm leather side pocket to hold those small items that we need while travelling: tickets, directions etc as well as small notes & keepsakes from loved ones
  • Will also hold most phone sizes - up to 17cm high (will also depend on thickness)
  • Flexibility - the soft leather covers tuck nicely into backpacks, bags and pockets (unlike hard cover books)
  • The hand stitched pages result in a stronger journal than glued books
  • Pages lay flat for easy writing - NO spiral bindings
  • Wrap your journal closed to prevent accidental openings
  • The kangaroo leather wrapping strap is a little piece of Australia if you are travelling abroad

The Treasured Qualities of a Handcrafted 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...>

I make each journal in my studio in Victoria, Australia and aim to create a small work of art to be treasured for many years.  I discretely sign each journal on the last page to authenticate my work.
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 your 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

This journal is made from the beautiful Antique Oak Brown Aniline leather.  Soft and supple it has unique characteristics that give each piece its individual look.  And it also ages with use so that it continues to delight over the years.

Personalise This Journal

Title Page

The journal can be personalised with a Title Page printed with a name, a quote or both. Add a personalised title page to this journal ...>


Add initials to this journal with blind debossing.  Beautiful brass letters are heat stamped into the leather to create a timeless and elegant impression. Add a monogram here...

And you are supporting and enabling an Artisan Tradition to continue! 

From the Maker's Hands to Yours.

A labour of Pride & Love!

Thank You!

    This is my second order from Bookseed and I've been delighted with the quality of the heirloom product. Beverley goes the extra mile in service paying attention to detail. The gift wrap is beautiful. It's a pleasure to be able to find a gift that is uniquely crafted at a reasonable price. Thanks Beverley!

    We received the journal today and we are so thrilled with it. We wanted something personal and useful that we could give to our son as he sets off on a 12 month travel overseas. This is the perfect gift! We personalised the front page with a message from home so he is always reminded of us and the journal itself is extremely practical and functional. He can store his passport and papers safely without taking up a lot of valuable space.

    Along with this, the journal is handcrafted and great care has been taken to create a unique product.

    We love it and highly recommend it - especially for a young man.

    Thank you!
