"Good writing is like a window pane." ~George Orwell


— l e a t h e r & d e s i g n —
George Orwell (1903-1950) was an English author and journalist. I can almost imagine him using a journal much like this one! The first page of the journal has the above quote which is framed, fittingly, with a faint outline of a window pane. (This journal can also come without the quote page; please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.) The leather is a distressed ruddy brown cowhide, with dark pock-marks and scratches, giving it an old world look; it also has the 'raw' edge of the hide on the cover's flap. The oils in the leather may or may not slightly stain the first and last pages of the journal over time, lending it a lovely 'antique' finish. The leather strap wraps around the journal and tucks underneath itself in the front to keep the journal closed.
