They lay open all the way flat for comfortable use.
These large, solid journals are outstanding for sketching, drawing, writing...the heavy weight, matte pages have a lovely drape and the book's overall dimensions inspire one into great creations.

FAQ about our $118 Exquisite Oversized Custom Blank Journals:
--We CANNOT LINE the pages. The sheets are too large to fit through our printers. We can include a lined insert upon request, free of charge. This can be slipped under the page in use as a guide.
--We CANNOT print on the ROUNDED SPINE of these books.
--Extra ribbon page markers are no extra charge, just let us know what you'd like.
