**SMALL PRINT**

Leathers may show slight natural markings on both the inside and outside; this is a normal feature and enhances the sketchbook's individual beauty and demonstrates its natural, as opposed to machine-embossed, grain.

Your second choice of leather & thread colour combination will be used in the event of your first choice being unavailable.

Customised bindings cannot be returned for refund.

Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for me to bind your book to order. If you need it by a particular date, please convo or email me BEFORE ordering.
