The MAJESTIC Journals' Public Debut

Majestic leather journals Majestic and Regular leather journals

These oversized majestic beauties have been the joy of a few book lovers who order custom made journals... a rather elite group! But they're too good to hide away, so I'm now adding them to the shopping cart for everyone to enjoy.  Double the stitching on the spine there are 12 holes and 384 pages - double the regular sized A5 journal.  I've included a picture above so that you can get a sense of the impressive stature of these gorgeous journals.  I know that some people use my journals as a decorative feature - displaying on antique desks or shelves etc.  These are glorious.  But of course, also functional.  And ideal when you've got a lot to write about! They're $125 (the regular A5 journal is $89). In the shopping cart under Leather Journals A5.  Here is the Antique Oak....


Introducing... the NEW Purple

Cue the music, flash the lights, eyes on the catwalk.... and here she comes.... this year's Purple Leather is deep, deep, violet and soft and luscious!

Currently available in A5 journals in three colour combinations: Purple and Red - Purple and Turquoise and Violet Purple !

I will be adding more items to the range such as: Notebook covers and Bookwrap and A4 journal so please email or phone if you would like to order prior to them being available online.

Pocket Sized Travel Journals - Non Leather

Paper Fabric Travel Journals are Vegan Friendly

Very excited to announce the release of journals made from NON leather Kraft Paper Fabric.

I've been experimenting with this new product for a couple of months now and I'm very pleased with the results. Soft, flexible but very strong.  They even claim it can be washed however, I would NOT ADVISE washing your journals.  The paper inside is still the beautiful archival paper and it's not water friendly :)

Ideal for Animal Lovers and those who would prefer not to use Animal products. It's also Vegan Friendly.

And another bonus is that you can draw, paint, sketch, write messages on the outside of the journal. Great way to personalise for yourself, or write messages for a loved one travelling.

Like my other travel journals these now also feature the centre Story Board that is made from the beautiful Italian Drawing Paper.

I will be adding more items to the range as soon as I can but if you would like something from my regular range made with this new Paper Fabric then please just let me know.

Classic Black & Gold - A Traditional Favourite

The Chesterfield Range

When my leather supplier showed me his beautiful range of leathers used to make the classic Chesterfield furniture, I just knew that I had to include it in my range. 

I have both the Emerald Green and Ruby Red colours.  Richly dark with a hint of the undercolour peeking through in the well worn areas of the pieces.  I've been learning about the 'rubbing back' technique to reveal the hidden colours, which also gives an old look and feel to the piece.  Or the type of much loved look that well used treasures obtain - the patina.

These leathers are available in all of my range: Journals, Book Wraps and Notebooks.  I'm still trying to build up the stock to photograph but can certainly make on request.  So feel free to email me if you would like something made from these lovely leathers.

Chesterfield Leather Boook Wraps.  Handcrafted from the leather used to create the classic Chesterfield furniture. Available in Journals, Book Wraps and Notebooks.

Creating a Journal - A short video

Many thanks to my young and enthusiastic filmmakers - Alex, Giulia and Valmorey who filmed this short video in the studio last week.




I am delighted to announce that I can now offer monogramming of initials on most of my leather items! 

Many of you have been asking and waiting patiently and I've now finally got the equipment in the studio.

Currently offering the beautiful 'blind debossing' - where the gorgeous brass letters are heat pressed into the leather. 

Creating a beautiful subtle, elegant and timeless result.
