"I'm just going to write because I cannot help it.”
—Charlotte Brontë

The first page of the journal has a portrait of Charlotte Bronte, captioned with the above quote. I can almost imagine Brontë herself using a journal much like this!

The leather is a marbled mahogany - buttery soft. A brown cord wraps around the book and then around a pretty button, protecting the pages within and keeping the book securely closed.

This journal measures approximately 5½" x 4¼" and 1½" thick.

It boasts 320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb.\/105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges - it's acid free, archival, and 3rd party certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (high quality paper with a conscience!). The journal opens flat so you can write all the way into the margins. The page sections have been hand-stitched to the leather cover with beeswaxed Irish linen thread, which is visible on the spine - it's a very sturdy and attractive binding.

Each book comes with a little "card of interest" containing information about your book (the history of the binding, the type of stitch) - which makes a lovely addition as a gift.

+ $5 Engraving up to 3 initials by freehand leather burning (not available for suede journals). Add the engraving option to your cart: http:\/\/\/shop\/lapaperie?section_id=6699893
