The Designer Collection embraces beautiful fabrics and silky threads with gorgeous leather to create pieces to be enjoyed and treasured.

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


See the latest fabric range! 

Liberty of London has been delighting the world with stunning fabrics for over 140 years. Known for their exquisite designs from very talented artists. And who knew they worked so beautifully with leather and paper! An ideal choice for creating my new range.

Hidden treasures await to be explored within the covers of beautiful leathers. The fabrics will be available for a limited time only and will continually change. Just add your preferred fabric to the shopping cart when you order your journal. 

Please note that not all fabric and leather combinations have been photographed but I will add them as they become available. Larger images of fabric designs are shown in the product photos. Choose from the following current designs:


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:

  • Beautiful Liberty of London Fabric lining
  • A5 Leather Journal (approx 21cm H x 15cm W - Half an A4)
  • Quality genuine leather handcrafted cover
  • Genuine kangaroo leather wrap around strap
  • Hand stitched pages using beautiful Italian Aurifil thread

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.

    Custom A5 Leather Journal

    Posted by George on 9th Jul 2022

    This is my second Journal from BOOKSEED / Beverley in just over a year. As with my first, the quality of the piece & skill used in its creation is superb. Beverley’s communication & options provided ensure an excellent product, exactly as envisaged. Both items were gifts & have been received with the pleasure & excitement you can only hope for in any special gift. First class... Highly recommend Bookseed products.

    I have now purchased 3 journals from Beverley and they are all so stunning. Beverley is such a pleasure to deal with and I hope she continues to make these stunning pieces for years to come so I can keep buying more! Thank you for what you do :)

    Designer Collection - Liberty of London - Leather Journal A5

    Posted by Danielle on 23rd Jul 2019

    Absolutely stunning material. Really gorgeous. Makes the journal stand out from previous journals I’ve purchased from Bookseed. I want all journals I purchase in the future to have the inner fabric. As my journals turned out so beautiful with this fabric, I have every intention of purchasing a journal with inner fabric as a Christmas gift. Just beautiful!!
