"If you do not tell the truth about yourself

—Virginia Woolf

The original quoted journal! The first page of the journal has a b&w portrait of Virginia Woolf captioned with the above quote.

The journal measures approx. 5.5" x 4.25" and over 1" thick.

The leather is a beautifully supple deep mahogany full-grain cowhide, with gorgeous dark\/light colour variations throughout - the raw edge of the hide has been used on the wrap around flap. The book is kept securely closed with a coordinating tie that wraps around the book and tucks underneath itself in the front.

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 book opens flat so you can write all the way into the margins. The pages are handstitched onto the leather cover with beeswaxed Irish linen thread. The exposed stitching visible on the spine; this is a very sturdy but attractive binding.

Each book comes with a little "card of interest" containing information about your book such as the type of leather, the history of the binding, and the stitch. Makes a lovely addition as a gift!
