This is one of the leather journals I had made by hand and sold. I can make custom leather journals by request. Every journal I make is unique, so it can be similar to other, but it will always be a detail that give a different look to each.

This listing is for a custom engraved leather journal. Hand cut, hand punched, hand tooled and hand stitched. It has a leather strap that wraps around the journal to keep in closed. At the end of the leather strap that wraps around the journal it will be a hand carved wood piece.

Front and back will be made with genuine cowhide leather, hand cut, hand punched, hand engraved, hand tooled and hand dyed. Spine, flap and strap will be from a different leather.

Every journal have 140 pages (280 sides), pretty ivory color pages - acid free and recycled. The pages are sewn to the leather cover with acid free book binding linen thread.
* To add more pages for an additional cost, please contact me.

It will be shipped with a rustic handmade burlap envelope case where you can carry your journal or reuse it with anything else you want.

Feedback about this product:
- Janice is AMAZING! I requested a custom order of a journal for my girlfriend and I to record our adventures and trips that we go on together. Janice was very willing to customize one of her beautiful suede journals for me and she ended up making the journal better than I could have ever imagined. The detail that Janice puts into her journals is unmatchable. SO much stitching and extra little logos here and there. This journal is beautiful. Janice also includes an awesome pouch that the journal comes in that is just as much a piece of art work as the journal itself is. If I ever need to purchase another journal, I will go to NaboriDaca FIRST. Super quick message replies and very kind customer service. I'm a customer for life and would HIGHLY recommend to ANYONE! Thanks again Janice!! (Nick Nardone - 12.03.2011)
