*************************ITEM DESCRIPTION*************************

I take item photos in natural daylight right by a window and also in house lighting with the models so that you can hopefully get a good idea of the color in both bright and dim lighting.

steampunk inspired handmade leather journal. All leather used is exotic high quality leathers which are either dyed various colors or tanned, waxed or foiled giving a beautiful aged-vintage look. Metal embellishments are mostly brass and copper and some brass and copper coated alloy.

The particular leather in this journal is a soft thick velvet-touch bright teal (its a darker green-blue in person than pictured - for some reason the camera only picks up the blues - last photo shows the real color well). The suede has one light dent on the front where it was once stapled but it adds to the vintage look! The journal features an elaborate 3D antiqued copper metal lock and key.

the journal also features my signature "doorknob" closure clasp which makes opening and keeping the journal closed much easier. The knob on this journal is an antiqued copper. Paper is medium weight white paper and is attached to the leather with two antiqued brass coated jumprings.

Journal is hung on a simple chocolate leather cord made of soft deerskin which is roughly 3ft long


Take the journey with you and write it all down in this travel journal! Perfect for secret notes, important quotes, autographs, and your personal observations as you venture through this world!



****I SHIP TO THE ADDRESS LISTED ON ETSY NOT PAYPAL**** so please make sure your etsy address is up to date!

All items are shipped for free within 48 hours using USPS first class or USPS priority mail for larger orders. Domestic items take 3-5 business days, international takes around 2 weeks but keep in mind that in countries like Australia customs can hold items for 4-6 weeks; I cannot be responsible for international customs.

Since I offer shipping for free and it cuts into my profit, if you want your package insured with delivery confirmation so that you can track your package online you will need to purchase this separately for $4 here (domestic only – International customers convo me for options). You only need to add this service to your shopping cart once no matter how many items you purchase:


Once the package leaves my hands I cannot control the post, therefore if anything is lost in the mail I cannot offer a refund or replacement. I would suggest paying for this service if you are concerned about the safety of your item. I have only ever experienced 2 items lost in the mail in 2 years but it is up to you if you wish to insure or not – I would recommend it during the Christmas season so you can track the progress since holiday seasons can slow the post.

International customers are not covered either under basic shipping – once an item leaves the USA I cannot be responsible for what happens in your country. If you wish to secure your package message me separately for international options.

By purchasing this item you agree to the above policy. This is why I offer basic shipping for free, I understand how expensive it can get to mail items, so all you need to pay for if you wish to is for the added security. Thanks for understanding!
