The Aussie Travel Journal

The Ideal Travelling Companion!

Includes a Travel pocket for phone, momentos, tickets, keepsakes or ...

The same great qualities of my classic handcrafted leather journal but specially designed with a handy traveller's pocket.

The Aussie Travel Journal benefits:

  • Inside 8cm leather side pocket to hold those small items that we need while travelling: tickets, directions etc as well as small notes & keepsakes from loved ones
  • Will also hold most phone sizes - up to 17cm high (will also depend on thickness)
  • Flexibility - the soft leather covers tuck nicely into backpacks, bags and pockets (unlike hard cover books)
  • The hand stitched pages result in a stronger journal than glued books
  • Pages lay flat for easy writing - NO spiral bindings
  • Wrap your journal closed to prevent accidental openings
  • The kangaroo leather wrapping strap is a little piece of Australia if you are travelling abroad

The Treasured Qualities of a Handcrafted Journal

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...>

  • Quality leather handcrafted cover
  • Kangaroo leather wrap around strap with leather top
  • 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
I make each journal in my studio in Victoria, Australia and aim to create a small work of art to be treasured for many years.  I discretely sign each journal on the last page to authenticate my work.
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 your 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 Brown Leather

This journal is made from the beautiful Antique Oak Brown Aniline leather.  Soft and supple it has unique characteristics that give each piece its individual look.  And it also ages with use so that it continues to delight over the years.

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!

    I purchased his journal for a friend who is about to embark on her first adventure overseas. I am absolutely in awe of Beverley and her ability to produce such beautifully handmade product. It was my pleasure to support her work and enable an Artisan tradition to continue. Delivery was prompt with communication between order and end product to ensure everything was as ordered. I have no qualms recommending Bookseed to anyone who would like to purchase a personalised and intimate gift.

    What a beautiful handmade gift. I bought it for a present, arrived beautifully wrapped so it was all ready to take. I also got it monogrammed so it was even more personal. A gift that was well received by the recipient.

    Beverley was so helpful when choosing the personalisation style for the travel journal. The process from beginning to end was efficient and friendly. The journal itself was beautifully wrapped and I’m so excited at giving it to my daughter for her 21st birthday !

    Absolutely beautiful! Was given as a wedding anniversary gift. The feel and leather smell are incredible. It has so much personality. The paper quality is really good. The customer service has been amazing, was shipped out promptly and arrived on time , beautifully wrapped. Beverley answered all my questions and was very helpful. I had the journal embossed which gave it the perfect touch. If your looking for that something special, that is vintage and will last forever look no further! Thanks again
