We craft vintage books into antique daily journals. Each one is unique. These book journals make thoughtful gifts for colleagues, friends, family and especially for your personal use. A perfect daily journal, food diary, thoughtful gift, or sketch book.

At Write On, Inc., we carefully select vintage books (or contemporary books with amazing covers) that have no commercial value, so don't worry, we haven't destroyed a valuable antiquarian treasure. We are upcycling old treasures and creating new ones—especially if you capture your poetry and daily thoughts inside. (We even recycle the pages we have removed into other flea-market craft items.)

But here’s the real cover story: Sometimes vintage books are in plentiful supply or they're being recycled by local libraries. We carefully list any of value on amazon and with others that have unusual or striking vintage covers and wonderful color or b/w plates, we create journals so you can re-read yesterday’s books—some may be over 100 years old (please see specifics on this listing) or childhood favorites.

Many spines are tattered, so we remove those, smooth the edges and gently bind with plastic-coated spiral wire or o-wire. Read between the covers: Before we put it all together, we select paper that matches or coordinates with the original pages, include a number of blank pages with no lines and then include charming color plates, black and white illustrations, maybe a contents page, or poems directly from the original book. Sorry, the pens are ours.
