Hand carved, leather journal, customized for you. This journal is a portable journal for carrying in a purse, backpack or briefcase. The entire journal is made by hand using veg-tanned leather and white or cream text paper. Excellent for taking notes or journaling-on-the-go. These would make beautiful, personal gifts for any occasion. This is a 2 1/2" x 3 3/8" hardcover book with 240 pages (front and back).

You have a variety of options when ordering this book.

Color: there is a color chart in the photos. You can choose a single color for the whole book--if so, I will antique or highlight/enhance the outline of the letter so that it's more visible. You can choose one color for the letter and a separate color for the background. I also have a rainbow of artist acrylics which can be used to color the letter (i.e., the "N" journal has a silver letter).

Letter: these are initial journals--customized with a single initial. Please only choose one letter. If you'd like something with more lettering or a fancier design, you can convo me to discuss the possibilities or check my shop for more customized options (

Alphabet: I have a wide variety of fonts available and several decorative alphabets. If you aren't sure what font you'd like, please let me know what letter you want and I'll send you a sample of fonts available for that letter.

Paper: You can choose between white and cream paper. The white has a smooth surface while the cream have a woven, slightly textured surface.

Once you've purchased, I will contact you for the details regarding your personalization. If you would like, you can include your choices in the message to the seller when you order.

I also offer pastel paper to make these more of a sketchbook. The text paper is good for writing and most dry media but is not an artist paper. If you're interested in the pastel paper rather than the text paper or would like to discuss a larger size or more complicated design, please convo me to discuss.


Custom items (including personalized items) are not returnable unless damaged in shipping. I try to send photos at key points during the process, if needed, and a final photo to shipping but can't guarantee that I can do this for every order, particularly rush orders. Once the item has been shipped, items cannot be returned unless damaged during shipping.

While I want to make sure that your item is exactly what you're looking for, some changes to a book cannot be made once certain elements have been completed (size and paper type cannot change once I've started the book, color can't be changed once the cover has been dyed, design cannot be changed once I've started carving and tooling, etc.) without additional fees to cover remaking the item.

For non-book items, I cannot change the design or colors after you have approved the digital mock up since working on the item can occur shortly after your approval.

Please make your choices carefully and communicate with me fully before I begin working on your item.

For all cancellations on custom work, 50% of the cost is non-refundable.

For items that require a choice (color, font, etc.), if no choice is included with the order and no response is given to information requests, I will make your item as close to the image in the first picture of the listing, sized according to your purchase and with leeway for artistic changes if some element is unavailable (e.g., your letter doesn't come in a particular font, a vintage element is no longer available, etc.). For personalized items with no letter information included, I will use the first letter of the first name of the person the item is being shipped to. If you purchase an item and make customization requests that normally require an additional cost (e.g., extra lettering, straps/closures, etc.) or extra information that I can't infer from your order, profile or shipping info, if no response is given to clarification or upgrade requests, I will cancel your order and refund your money.

*All books shown in the images are samples only. Some are not the same size as the book being offered in this listing. Some show more complex designs than what is offered in this listing. If you're unsure of sizing or design options, please contact me with any questions.
