This compact journal will be your perfect traveling companion on your next journey. Packed with features, it has heavy pages for drawing and writing, lots of pockets, envelopes and tabs for collecting things along the way and a spine that expands to three inches to accommodate your photos and finds. What a great memento of a memorable trip!
-A traveling artist who likes to work small and keep their book at hand. The paper will accommodate all media that I have tested on it. It curls a bit when very wet but will dry flat.
-One who likes to glue things in as they journal, as the heavy paper will take lots of glue and additions and the spine will expand to accommodate it. No more journals bursting and the seams and splaying open!
-Of course the 40 blank pages are great for writing too!
This listing is for ONE journal. Three are shown to illustrate the variety available.
