This would make a lovely wedding guestbook or sketchbook. I love the rich look of deep burgundy and gold together... it's very regal! The leather is a rich burgundy cowhide and the cover of the journal is kept closed with a lovely antiqued gold-tone clasp which has been sewn to the leather strap. The leather strap is held to the journal through two slits in the leather in the back, and has a piece of elastic (unseen) to give the strap enough give to stretch when needed, to maneuver the closure and keep it secure.

9" high x 6" wide x 1½" thick (pages are 8½"x5½") and is quite substantial. It's basically twice the size of my regular journals, so there's a lot of book here! The book opens flat so you can write all the way into the margins.

320 pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb./105 gsm writing paper with regular cut edges, not handtorn. This paper is acid-free and archival and good for any dry media; fountain pen will not bleed through. The end papers are a classical blue/beige fleur-de-lis. The hearty binding is hand-stitched with strong beeswaxed Irish linen thread visible on the spine.
