Beautiful book! We are looking forward to using it as a guestbook. Shipped quickly and with rather pretty packaging :)

Item shipped quickly and is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a baby journal that wasn't overly feminine to use for my son.

Shipping was much faster than I expected, and the item came in great condition, with wonderful packaging. Very nice journal, that my wife loved as an anniversary gift.

About our Founder:
A lifelong lover of books, reading, and keeping a journal, bookbinding was a natural fit for me. I started exploring the world of book arts in high school at her local library by reading ‘how to’ books and absorbing all of the artist journals I could get my hands on.
In 2005 I was introduced to my first 'formal' binding stitch. Upon sewing that last page together and tying the final knot, I knew I had found an artistic home.
