"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

- The Road Not Taken (1915)
Robert Frost

The front page has lovely black&white photo captioned with the above Robert Frost quote from his beloved poem, "The Road Not Taken".

The leather is a richly textured chestnut brown cowhide complete with some minor scratches, which make for a rugged aged look. A brown satin ribbon wraps around the book several times and finally around a lovely handmade ceramic button (by muddymuse.etsy.com), protecting the pages within and keeping the book securely closed.

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

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.

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.
