Handcrafted in Australia - an Artisan Tradition
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...>
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.

A beautful gift for my daughter, that she will treasure forever. Beautiful craftsmanship. A unique & treasured book.
I absolutely love this journal, and couldn't be happier with the end product! It looks even better in person, and has that wonderful, earthy, leather smell. Upon opening the beautifully boxed journal, I could see it was made with love, and finished perfectly. Highly recommend!
This book is beautifully made. A real treasure.
The most wonderful thing I've ever held in my hands. The leather is a stunning colour, and you can tell that its was made with an intense love and passion for creation. You will open your package and your knees will buckle at that intoxicating leather smell and you will definitely not feel worthy for such a masterpiece. Be prepared to never want to write on another surface again because this journal will spoil you. I wish the people I've dated were as beautiful as this journal. Quotes from my household upon the unabashed parading of this journal around the house: "Thats divine bro" "Ohh pretty" "Oh my god its so beautiful" "Very Snazzy" This journal is hands down the best thing I have ever bought myself. You're denying yourself one of the greatest hits of serotonin you could possibly experience if you don't have this journal. Thank you so much for this journal. I love it and I love you.
Many thanks for such an amazing product.
Awesome product and awesome service
The Journal is absolutely perfect. Extremely well made. Thank you Beverley for your help and exceptional customer service!
This journal is just beautiful and will make the most amazing ten year anniversary gift for my husband full of all of our memories over the past ten years. It's beautifully made and presented. I just love it and it's so perfect. A true art that should be preserved.
I bought this journal as a one-year anniversary gift for me and my husband, so we can use it in place of cards every year we're married. I love how it feels when you hold it, and the paper is lovely and smooth. I'm a bit of a stationery fanatic so again, the paper made me very happy! Service was also excellent, and I am incredibly thankful for how quickly the book was made and sent. One thing I wasn't sure about, was that the inner lining almost seems to have a coating that reminds me of a polyester material? Although I don't really know anything about leather works to know whether this is standard or not. The journal came packaged beautifully, so I didn't need to worry about wrapping. Also, the leather smells divine, which makes it more satisfying as well to pull it out and hold it. Thank you, Bookseed, for an excellent product and service.
This book is so much more than a leather journal. It is an absolute work of art.
Over the years I have purchased three of these. They are beautifully crafted and will hopefully be an amazing momento to pass on to our kids. They are really good quality, highly recommend!
Amazing product. Beautifully made and packaged and it arrived so quickly in the mail. Spent ages trying to find a journal this beautiful as a memento and finally decided on this one and I am very satisfied.
