Espresso 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
  • Hand cut leather wide strap
  • 144 pages
  • Italian Paper in ivory creme
  • 90gsm paper weight

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.
Espresso Brown Leather Journal
This leather is coloured the deep, rich brown of coffee beans. Soft and supple yet very durable.  This is an ideal leather choice for those that like an overall pattern that doesn't mark easily.

    The journal was presented in a lovely box. The journal itself has lovely leather, the paper smooth and the biggest plus is that the pages lay flat. My son loved the gift. Thank you for your speedy delivery and quick responses - greatly appreciated.
