We craft vintage books into antique daily journals. Each one is unique. These book journals make thoughtful gifts for colleagues, friends, family and even for your personal use.

This, among the many we are listing, is a 1963 copy of Paddington At Large by Michael Bond.

The journal includes some of the original pages from the original book and darling illustrations of Paddington and friends and along with beige blank writing paper.

The cover of beige cloth binding shows Paddington with a magnifying glass. The covers have surprisingly little shelf wear. This is a former library book, so the original pocket is included inside the front cover.

This book journal measures about 8 x 5 inches. A perfect daily journal, food diary, business book, thoughtful gift, or sketch book.

At Write On, Inc., we carefully select vintage books that have no commercial value, so don't worry, we haven't destroyed a valuable antiquarian treasure. We are upcycling old treasures and creating new ones—especially if you capture your poetry and daily thoughts inside. (We even recycle the pages we have removed into other flea-market craft items.)

But here’s the real cover story: Sometimes vintage books are in plentiful supply or they're being recycled by local libraries. We carefully list any of value on amazon and with others that have unusual or striking vintage covers and wonderful color or b/w plates, we create journals so you can re-read yesterday’s books—some may be over 100 years old (please see specifics on this listing) or childhood favorites.

Many spines are tattered, so we remove those, smooth the edges and gently bind with plastic-coated spiral wire or o-wire. Read between the covers: Before we put it all together, we select paper that matches the original pages, include a number of blank pages with no lines and then include charming color plates, black and white illustrations, maybe a contents page, or poems directly from the original book. Sorry, the pens are ours.

We ship media mail on the day you purchase your item, so we can pass along the reduced postage and speed your package to you. We guarantee satisfaction.
