This journal is not a stock item, when you buy this book we will be making it especially for you, this takes time! Please see our shop home page for our current dispatch dates.
We have made this journal from a natural, vegetable tanned, full grain leather. This leather comes to us in pristine condition and we put it through various dying and staining techniques to give it a distressed look. We've gone for the look of a beaten up old flying jacket for this one. We finish the rustic look by leaving the natural edge of the hide on the wraparound flap, each one of these will be unique, some will have quite a straight edge, some will have a bit of a slant and some will be irregular. As it is the natural edge of the leather you might even find small scars, cuts or even holes on this edge. This is the sort of journal that you can take into the outdoors without worrying too much about it. The wraparound cover encloses the paper and is held in place with thonging that we make from the same leather.

Approximately 250 pages (500 sides) of A4 sized, unlined, recycled, paper.
The pages in this book are hand bound using a strong waxed cord. No glue is used, so the spine of the book cannot be broken, our binding is strong and permanent.
We're proud to say that this award winning paper is 100% recycled from unbleached post-consumer waste, which saves water, energy and trees.
It is a natural, off-white, oatmeal colour with faint flecks. It has a matt appearance, is slightly textured and it takes most fountain pens without 'bleeding'.
It's of archival quality which means that it will last for hundreds of years. This is great if you're planning on leaving your words for future generations!
