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 Antique Gold coloured thread
  • Signed by the Binder
  • Totally handmade by a book lover in Australia in the Artisan Tradition
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!  
Ideal gift for those milestone occasions:
  • Birthdays
  • Wedding Anniversary
  • Baby milestones
  • 18 or 21st gift for the younger generation
  • Retirement
  • Family stories
  • Family Recipes
  • Family History
  • Storing precious documents between the archival pages.
 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.
The COGNAC brown leather is a beautiful rich brandy colour with ageing characteristics.

    I could not be happier with how this turned out (bought it as a gift). It really is a beautiful piece of work with lots of thoughtful touches. Customer service was also excellent with a high degree of care and communication. Highly recommend

    Amazing work

    Posted by Kealan on 24th Jul 2019

    I bought this as a present for a friend, and she absolutely loves it. It's obvious that extreme care has gone into making it, every little detail speaks to the pride that Beverly takes in her work. It has also been very pleasant dealing with Beverly, not only did I have the journal in hand less than a week after ordering, she accommodated my specific requests regarding the packaging. I also opted for the embossing and personalised front page additions, which enhanced an already beautiful piece. I highly recommend anything from Bookseed, and I'll be sure to acquire more of Beverly's work in the future.

    Exceptional service from Barbara, who was courteous, thoughtful, kind and attentive in expediting delivery on this item to my brother who's birthday it was, in writing up a card on watercolour designed paper at no additional cost, and replying immediately to all my requests/concerns etc. Brilliant and my brother LOVED it - began writing in it within an hour of opening!

    Creating History

    Posted by Janet on 4th May 2016

    When my son was about to marry he requested a leather bound journal to track his new life with his beautiful wife. This A4 classic brown journal was just the ticket, a perfect gift. The leather was gorgeous and the detailed stitching and workmanship very impressive. He loved it and it feels already like an heirloom piece. Bev from Bookseeed was very accommodating with all my little whims and last minute amendments. Great service !

    Very impressed with the quality

    Posted by Gail on 23rd Dec 2015

    I was so impressed with the quality and workmanship of the first A5 journal I purchased as a christmas gift that I purchased another in the A4 size as an 18th birthday gift which I had personalised on the front page. Beverly's customer service and attention to detail is the best I have come across in a very long time The postage cost and turnaround time is excellent and the journal is beautifully gift boxed. I highly recommend them as the perfect gift idea.
