Leather bound journal perfectly sized from rich copper brown cowhide, this handmade journal diary will fit in a purse, a backpack, a saddlebag (on horse or Harley), glove box, console or . . . your hand. Either one. This journal is ambidextrous! And there’s a really neat piece of hand hammered and polished copper on the lapel.

-Measures 4-1/4” x 5-3/4” x 1-1/8” of rich copper brown cowhide
-Hand cut & trimmed into handsome fold over design

-Signatures stitched with waxen linen thread
-100+ hand torn deckle edge pages
-Hand cut & trimmed leather pocket/sleeve on back

My journals are truly hand bound books. No floppy signatures stitched to the spine, these journals are constructed using standard bookbinding materials. Every page is hand torn 250w fine art paper and most journals are adorned with original artwork and hand hammered copper, brass or silver

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such quality and care put into a handmade journal. Or any other journal I’ve used. The paper is phenomenal and the leather too. It is wonderfully nostalgic and feels like something out of the 1800s, but brand new. I’m looking forward to using this journal, filling it up, and seeing how beautifully it ages.
