 Handcrafted Leather Journal - Chesterfield Ruby Red

Handmade from the leather used to create the beautiful traditional Chesterfield furniture.

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.

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.
 
Chesterfield Ruby Red Leather

A labour of Pride & Love!

    Stunning A5 Journal

    Posted by Danielle on 24th Apr 2016

    This is one of 3 journals that I ordered from Bookseed, and Beverley's work is fantastic. I love that this journal is made from the same leather that Chesterfield use to construct their furniture. It's nothing short of gorgeous. It's well constructed, and came beautifully presented. Best of all, I didn't have to wait for weeks for this little beauty to arrive. Prompt and courteous service, AND a beautiful product. What more could you ask for?
