Guarantee:
I guarantee this is the most comfortable to hold, the most beautiful, and the best constructed journal you have ever experienced or I will refund your money including all shipping charges.

For this journal, I began with Black Walnut with a dark caramel-brown tone. The grain is figured with natural streaks and flaring highlights. To achieve the desired feel, each piece is hand sanded at least 10 times, resulting in a silky smooth surface. The finish is hand-rubbed Danish Oil mixed with a small percentage of varnish.

For the binding I've used distressed leather which is supple and smooth to the touch. My method of binding ensures that no leather edges are exposed, resulting in a book that is a joy to handle. Many people comment that they spend as much time simply holding their journal as they do writing in it.

The paper is 24 lb archival quality hemp paper, acid free, perfect for writing, sketching, or mounting. I hand tear, sew, and bind each page to create a strong durable paper block with deckled edges.

The headband is silk hand-sewn over hemp cord, creating a truly unique look. This step alone accounts for much of the time required to construct these books. There is no shortcut to doing this, which is why you simply do not find many books with hand-sewn headbands. I think you’ll find the results are worth the time.

This book is 8 inches tall, 6.5 inches wide, and 1.5 inches thick. There are 116 sheets, giving 232 writing pages. Each page is 5.5 inches wide, and 7.25 inches tall. This journal weighs just under 2 lbs.

About the price: each book represents the best available materials and long labor. Some ask how I can charge so much for a journal. Others, who are aware of the level of craftsmanship involved, marvel that I charge so little. I try to be within the reach of most, while still honoring the unique quality of each book.

I will repeat my guarantee: If you find that this isn’t the most comfortable to hold, the most beautiful, and the best constructed journal you have ever experienced, I will refund your money including all shipping charges.

Thank you.
