This compact journal will be your perfect traveling companion on your next journey. Packed with features, it has heavy pages for drawing and writing, lots of pockets, envelopes and tabs for collecting things along the way and a spine that expands to three inches to accommodate your photos and finds. What a great memento of a memorable trip!

Perfect for:
-A traveling artist who likes to work small and keep their book at hand. The paper will accommodate all media that I have tested on it. It curls a bit when very wet but will dry flat.
-One who likes to glue things in as they journal, as the heavy paper will take lots of glue and additions and the spine will expand to accommodate it. No more journals bursting and the seams and splaying open!
-Of course the 80 blank pages are great for writing too!

This listing is for ONE journal. Three are shown to illustrate the variety available.

I will be happy to include personalization on the cover if you like. Please let me know in the notes to seller.

NOTE: This is a custom made item that will be made to order for you with the maps of your choice. See current processing time under the Shipping & Policies tab where it says "Ready to Ship in . . .
