This journal was a fantastic project and I really enjoyed making it. Yours will be ready to ship whithin two weeks of payment. I want you to be 100% at ease when purchasing this book, so see below for my guarantee.

These features are available on any of my other books as well.

As with all my books, I guarantee this book to be the most comfortable to hold, the most beautiful, and the best contructed journal you have ever experienced or I will refund your money including all shipping charges.

Details of this journal:

- 5.5" wide, 7.5" tall, 2" thick
- 228 pages, making 456 writing surfaces
- Distressed leather with curved binding
- 24 lb hemp paper - acid free, archival quality, hand torn and sewn
- Silk headband sewn over hemp cord
- Birdseye Maple panels

For this journal, I began with Birdseye Maple. As always, the finish is natural, highlighting the natural beauty of the wood. I love a silky smooth finish, and there are no shortcuts to this. Each wood panel is painstakingly sanded over and over removing all imperfections and achieving a sensuous surface that is wonderful to touch. The finish is hand-rubbed Danish Oil mixed with a small percentage of varnish.

Distressed leather binds the edge, and 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 hemp, archival quality and 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 7.5 inches tall, 5.5 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. There are 200 sheets, giving 400 mounting/writing pages.

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.
