This is a rustic leather bound journal, individually handcrafted by myself at my studio, located in the big sky country of Montana. This journal shares the same nostalgic charms of the centuries old travel journals.

This journal is made from a soft, supple light weight leather. The color is Black with dark brown stitching and tie closure. This is a soft wrap around journal.

This is a slim journal. The size of paper is 4 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches. This journal has 88 leaves (and 176 pages, counting both sides). It has 4 sections/signatures, and each section is directly & permanently sewn to the leather, using the traditional longstitch binding.

The paper is 70 lbs. unlined text paper, and it is acid free and eco-friendly. The color of the paper is a shade of tan with tiny earth tone speckles. This is an excellent quality text paper and it works great with ink(no feathering/bleeding). The papers are hand torn and the journal has two hand torn edges(top edge & bottom edge).

The leather is hand cut. I used a sturdy leather lace for the tie closure. The tie closure wraps around the journal a couple of times in one direction and the end is tucked under the wrapped lace. I try to keep the tie closure very simple & functional, and this tie closure is very practical for frequent use.

This journal will be ideal for everyday writers, poems, artists' sketches & ideas, diary, travel journal, recipes, dream journal, guest book, graduation and for many other occasions.

This journal will be shipped via Priority Mail. A purchased item is usually shipped within 2 days of cleared payment, excluding weekends and holidays. Otherwise, it will be shipped on the following business day. Refund is given if it arrives damaged. Please e-mail me with any questions.

Thank you very much for viewing my journal
