Description 

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.

Bound in a single thick piece of vegetable tanned leather this journal has one of our hand tooled designs on the cover. It is made from the same leather as our brown journals and has a hand applied black finish. As we use 'full grain' leather, the natural marks and scars in the leather are still visible which makes each book unique. The covers are held closed by two cords finished with leather beads.

design

The Tree of Life is a symbol that is found in most cultures throughout the world, from Ygdrassil of the Norsemen to the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Trees have been of great spiritual importance throughout history, usually representing the link between heaven and earth. People have traditionally gained enlightenment while sitting under their branches, their fruit and sap have provided knowledge and immortality.
In this, our own Tree of Life design, the branches reach upward towards the light and heaven and open outwards to receive inspiration, their spiraling form represent spiritual growth. This is mirrored by the roots which spiral downward into the dark earth to receive nourishment. On the axis the horizontal line represents harmony and balance while the vertical represents the journey from the physical to the spiritual.

paper

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!
