Handcrafted in Australia - an Artisan Tradition

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
  • 192 pages
  • Italian Paper in ivory creme
  • 100gsm paper weight
  • Hand folded and pierced
  • Hand stitched pages
  • Italian Aurifil Egyptian Cotton thread
  • Signed by the Binder
  • Totally handmade by a book lover in Torquay, 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.

Personalise This Journal

Title Page

The journal can be personalised with a Title Page printed with a name, a quote or both. Add a personalised title page to this journal ...>


Add initials or a short name to the journal with blind debossing.  Beautiful brass letters are heat stamped into the leather to create a timeless and elegant impression.

And you are supporting and enabling an Artisan Tradition to continue! 

From the Maker's Hands to Yours...

A labour of Pride & Love!

Thank You!

    Bound in luxurious soft leather and amazing purple colour, this is a great gift for anyone (or a treat for yourself). Paper is great quality too and the journal is stitched perfectly. I had the first page specially printed as a 50th gift for my frien

    I had the first page specially printed as a 50th gift for my friend to take on a European trip, as a journal for her adventures. She loved it. It is the perfect gift that keeps on giving, it will hold special memories for years to come.

    Beautiful craftsmanship

    Posted by Elli on 18th Aug 2018

    I was so excited to see the journal when it arrived in the mail and it definitely exceeded my expectations. It looks, feels and smells like something that was made before my time. You can tell how much love has been put into these pieces of artistry and I can't wait to give it as a gift even though I'd quite like to keep it for myself!

    Lovely gift for a friend

    Posted by Jaime on 17th Aug 2018

    After receiving one of Beverley’s books myself I couldn’t wait to return the favour by passing one onto my best friend for her 30th. It’s a piece I hope she treasures forever as I know I will mine. Thanks Beverley for your beautiful workmanship and love put into making keepsakes.
