This elegant handmade leather journal features an envelope style flap that is beautifully hand-cut. The accompanying extra long leather wrap closure keeps the journal secure and gives it wonderful personality. The spine also boasts a beautiful array of turquoise colored stones and glass beads. This journal is complete with a sewn-in ribbon bookmark to compliment the color of the bead work.
Note: Bead work will vary slightly from what is shown. Also, I have many other bead colors (check out the pic):

★★★★ PAPER & BINDING ★★★★
- PAGE COUNT: 200 hand torn IVORY pages (counted back/front-the way you would count the pages in a book)
- PAPER THICKNESS & TEXTURE: The paper is thick and perfect for writing (70lb weight, for you fellow paper geeks). The paper surface is mostly smooth, with the slightest hint of texture. To prevent journal bulkiness, I use a lighter paper, when extra pages are added (avail for purchase below). Due to its hand torn nature, paper may be slightly uneven and jagged, causing a fantastic rustic and aged look.
- ADDITIONAL DETAILS: 25% cotton, 30% RECYCLED, acid & lignin free (archival quality-for those of you who plan to keep your journals for a millennia or longer)
FOUNTAIN PEN NOVELISTS: If you typically use a fountain pen or other heavy ink instrument, please let me know and I will make sure I use paper appropriate for your fancy writing style.

This journal is bound with heavy waxed bookbinding thread. I previously used a white cotton thread, (you may see it in some pics) but found that it was not nearly as strong. This is a handcrafted piece; all my leather pieces are shaped and cut by hand and, although I do my absolute best to make a perfect product, I am alas human. However, I am constantly trying to improve my creation process, so you can bet that your journal will be as perfect, as humanly possible. I use only top grain leather, so your journal may have natural markings including cattle brands and finished scratches.
