The Diamond of my leather journals!

The large sized A4 journal enables lots of space for writing, sketching and storing photos and keepsakes.

A very beautiful journal that has a sacred quality.

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...>

  • Quality leather handcrafted cover
  • Kangaroo leather wrap around strap
  • 256 pages
  • Italian paper in ivory creme
  • 120gsm paper weight
  • Hand folded and pierced
  • Hand stitched with hand painted thread
  • Signed by the Binder
  • Totally handmade by a book lover in Australia
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.
The larger A4 size allows for lots of creative space.  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 filling 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.
This beautiful Antique Oak Cowhide is an Aniline leather with unique aged characteristics. The old antiquated look is one the cherished features that I especially choose this leather for my products. And it continues to develop a richer patina with use.  Choose the elegance of either Gold or Copper hand stitching on the spine.

    Leather Journal

    Amazing Product, you will not be disappointed. Such a beautifully made journal. Added a fabric lined option which just made it that little bit more personal. Absolutely blown away when I revived it, it was a gift and they loved it. Beverley does an amazing job. If I ever need another I’ll definitely be back!

    A4 Antique Oak Journal

    I ordered the antique oak A4 journal as a Christmas gift, and I was blown away when it arrived. It will make a truly beautiful art journal for the recipient. It is impeccably made, and the addition of a personalised title page, the Liberty of London fabric on the inside, and monogramming on the front cover just take this journal to a whole new level. Seriously considering buying one for myself.

    I can not fault the service of Beverley at Bookseed. I ordered my journal Sunday night & Beverly made contact Monday. My journal was delivered on the Thursday. So impressed! The journal was just beautiful, I had it embossed with my fathers’ initials and a title page was made up. I’m so happy with the finished product & highly recommend this wonderful Artisan Tradition to all!

    Excellent gift

    Posted by Guy Stewart on 18th Sep 2018

    I bought this for a colleague for his 50th birthday. He is worldly, very clever and very difficult to buy something for and this was very well received by him. He considered it a unique, interesting and considered gift, and loved the personalised message and craftsmanship. From my perspective as the purchaser the process of buying it, which required a short time frame, we easy and very well handled. I was very happy with the decision to buy this.

    WOW! What a beautifully handcrafted heirloom journal. Absolutely perfect. Terrific service from Beverley, including meeting our short timeframe for our son's 21st. He loved it too and thought it quite impressive. We can't wait for another special occasion to gift another Bookseed product.
