Antique Oak Brown Leather Journal

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.

This Handcrafted Journal features:

  • A5 Leather Journal (approx 21cm H x 15cm W - Half an A4)
  • Quality genuine leather handcrafted cover
  • Genuine kangaroo leather wrap around strap
  • 144 pages
  • Italian Paper in ivory creme
  • 90gsm paper weight
  • Hand folded and pierced
  • Hand stitched with hand painted thread
  • Signed by the Binder
  • Totally handmade by a book lover in Australia
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.
Antique Oak Brown Leather Journal
This genuine cowhide aniline leather features an antique look in rich acorn browns. It has a classically aged look that devleps more deeply over time. Works beautifully with either Copper or Antique gold coloured binding thread on spine.  A really beautiful leather that creates one of my most popular journals.

    Very happy!

    Posted by Katherine on 13th May 2020

    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!
