Classic Brown Leather Journal

Espresso is the new Classic Brown leather colour!

Richly coloured and featuring an even pattern, this new leather is soft and supple yet strong enough to take on the road.


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.

    Thank you Beverley and Bookseed for you exceptional craftsmanship. The beautiful A5 leather journal arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. The recipient was delighted with their gift. When it arrived, it was wrapped so carefully to ensure a safe delivery through the mail. There was also a bookmark and pen included and it was boxed up so lovingly and tied with a beautiful bow. I could not have been more pleased with the product or the friendly and efficient service and care shown by Beverley. I would wholeheartedly recommend Bookseed's products to others and I, myself will definitely be a returning customer. Thank you Beverley and Bookseed.

    Fantastic product and service.

    I contacted Beverley a while ago so she could make me a nice journal for my wife as an anniversary gift. She was very pleasant to deal with over the phone and helped me choose the right options that I thought my wife would like. Beverley made us a wonderful A5 journal with, purple leather with really nice blue stitching. I also had her print a nice personal dedication to my wife on the first page. It also came in a nice gift box. The book itself is nothing short of superb, the build quaility is amazing. This is truly one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen. When I gave it to my wife, she instantly loved it and it has since become one of her most treasured items. She uses it to record all of the important stories and times we share as a family. We were both so impressed that it was hand made by Beverley we showed it off to all of our freinds and family. Beverley truly is a master of her trade, you can see the effort and pride she puts into her work. They really are unique pieces of art. I wouldn't hesitate to comission Beverley to make me another of her fantastic books in the future. Thanks for the memories.
