Leather Journal Majestic A5 - Antique Oak

A Regally Grand Journal of Impressive Stature!

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...>

This A5 journal is of majestic proportions!  Featuring 12 holes on the spine, it is double the usual A5 journal size.  It makes an impressive statement as a visual artistic piece.  And of course is still very functional and will hold a substantial number of words!
Leather journals are 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.

Antique Oak Leather

This beautiful Antique Oak Cowhide is an Aniline leather with unique aged characteristics. The old antiquated look is a cherished feature that continues to develop a richer patina with use. The Antique Gold stitching on the spine results in a very pleasing combination.

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 H: 21cm x W:15cm (half an A4) x D: 5cm )
  • Quality leather handcrafted cover
  • Kangaroo leather wrap around strap
  • 384 pages

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

From the Maker's Hands to Yours...

A labour of Pride & Love!

    Majestic indeed!

    Posted by David on 20th Dec 2019

    Beverley's journals are literally sensational. Take in the rich smell and feel of beautiful leather, marvel at traditional craftmanship that is second to none and enjoy the feel of your pen flowing across thick, high quality Italian paper. Beverley is also very accommodating with custom orders - I had an extra large one made with additional pages and Beverley was more than happy to oblige. Will definitely buy more in the future.

    Majestic leather journal

    Another wonderful journal. The stitching is more 'burnt orange' than copper and it compliments the black leather beautifully. A joy to hold this in my hand. Thank you as always.

    Amazing work.

    Posted by Curtis on 22nd Jan 2018

    I had Beverley make me a nice book for my daughter. She was easy to work with and communication was great. The book itself is amazing, the quality and workmanship is second to none. This is the second book I've had Beverley make for me, and yet again she has surpassed all expectations.

    The happiest purchase I've ever made

    Posted by Christine on 1st Aug 2017

    I bought a journal as a wedding gift, uncertain about a bunch of things - number of pages, what to emboss on the cover, which type of leather to choose. From start to finish, Beverley was nothing but helpful. She responded quickly to all my emails (a most important factor when I kept changing my mind!) and even took the time to show me what my embossing choices would look like on the real thing. I'm incredibly happy with the final product. It's not just any book to write it; you can sense the care and time Beverley put into her work. Would definitely shop here again!

    Magestic Leather Journals

    Posted by Pam Wakefield on 1st Jul 2017

    These journals are amazing! Beautiful, tactile and weighty. I use mine every day for writing, collage and even some light watercolour. Treat yourself to something very special but be warned, they are addictive ...
