I am a free human being
with an independent will...”
—Jane Eyre (1847), Charlotte Brontë
The first page of the journal has a portrait of Charlotte Bronte, captioned with the above quote from her beloved novel, "Jane Eyre". (This journal can also come without the quote page. Please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The leather is a beautiful supple mahogany-coloured cowhide. The natural oil in this leather may lightly stain/'antique' the first and last pages, adding a rustic charm. A satin ribbon wraps around a lovely button, keeping the journal closed.

It has 320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb./105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges; it's acid free and archival and opens completely flat so you can write/draw all the way into the margins. The binding is hand-stitched in coordinating beeswaxed Irish linen thread visible on the spine.
