All my life I've looked at words
as though I were seeing them
for the first time.

—Ernest Hemingway

The first page of this lovely journal has a b&w photograph captioned with the above quote of Hemingway's.

The leather is a beautiful saddle brown cowhide which is heavy-gauge and strong. The hearty binding is handstitched with natural beeswaxed Irish linen thread, which is visible on the spine. The book is kept closed with a brown ribbon that wraps around the book several times, and then around a beautiful handmade clay button (with leaf imprints).

The journal measures approx. 5.5" x 4.25" and 1.5" thick, and boasts 320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb.\/105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges - it's acid free, archival, and 3rd party certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (high quality paper with a conscience!). The book opens flat so you can write all the way into the margins.

Each book comes with a little "card of interest" containing information about your book (the history of the binding, the type of stitch) - which makes a lovely addition as a gift.

Custom orders welcome! You can add...
+ $5 Customized quote page (any text\/image\/inscription)
+ $5 Lined pages (not available for all sized journals)
+ $5 Engraving up to 3 initials by freehand leather burning (not available for suede journals)
