Cognac Brown Leather Journal with Wide Strap

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 leather hand cut 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.
Cognac Brown Leather Journal
This genuine cowhide leather has been dyed a deep cognac brown colour and displays a rich antique patterned look. Works beautifully with the hand dyed Copper coloured binding thread on spine.

    I purchased this as a Father's day present and it is absolutely beautiful. It's obvious that a lot of care went into making it as the quality is excellent. Beverley was lovely to deal with too and the book arrived within a week of ordering. Highly recommended!

    Top Quality product

    Posted by Graham John Dunkley on 7th Mar 2018

    This Journal is amazing, the leather is supple, feels great in your fingers and protects your paper. The paper is of top quality far superior than I thought. The only personal negative was i assumed the holding strap was more ridgard, its a velvet touch that's easily wrapped around your journal, probably better then what i assumed.

    Excellent product and service

    Posted by Kathryn on 27th Dec 2016

    I purchase this journal as a Christmas present for my husband. Despite only placing the order a few days before Christmas and requesting embossing and a personalised front page, the journal arrived within two days and it was amazing. My husband loved it and I know he will treasure it for years to come. I don't usually like buying online without seeing the product first, but Beverley's work and service was second to none. I will not hesitate in recommending this purchase to other buyers.
