Classic Black Leather Journal

A Timeless Classic!

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.
Classic Black Leather Journal
This genuine cowhide Black leather is a traditional favourite that's hard to beat.  Works beautifully with the hand dyed Antique Gold or Copper coloured binding thread on spine.

    Little Black Book

    Posted by DanielleM on 24th Apr 2016

    This is a gorgeous journal. It's the 3rd that I've ordered from Bookseed. Beverley's work is meticulous, and she's very easy to deal with. I love everything about this little black book, from how the leather is finished, to how the journal is presented when it arrives. Thanks for a gorgeous journal, Beverley.
