This is a rustic hand bound leather journal, individually handcrafted by myself at my studio. This journal shares the same nostalgic charms of the centuries old travel journals.

This journal is made from a soft, supple leather. The color is Distressed Brown with dark brown stitching & tie closure. This is a soft, wrap around journal.

This is a small pocket size journal. The overall size of the journal is approximately 3 3/4 inches by 5 inches, and the actual paper size is 3 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches. And it is a nice convenient size to carry around in your pocket or purse. This journal has 144 leaves (and 288 pages, counting both sides). It has 6 sections/signatures, and each section is directly sewn to the leather, using the traditional longstitch binding.

The paper is 70 lbs. unlined text weight paper, and it is acid free. The color is a shade of tan with tiny earth tone speckles. It is a very rustic paper to compliment the natural leather. This is an excellent quality paper and it works great with ink(no feathering/bleeding). The papers are hand torn and the journal has one hand torn edge(top edge), as shown in one of the photos. The leather is hand cut. I used a Latigo leather lace for the tie closure. The tie closure wraps around the journal a couple of times in one direction and the end is tucked under the wrapped latigo lace. I try to keep the tie closure very simple & functional, and this tie closure is very practical for frequent use.

This journal will be ideal for everyday writers, poems, artists' sketches & ideas, diary, travel journal, recipes, guest book, graduation and for many other occasions,
