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've gone for a really rugged look with this journal. We make it from an amazingly tough vegetable tanned leather which is heavily waxed to give a beautifully supple and durable finish. Any scratches it acquires on your adventures can be removed by a quick rub with your finger; it's the sort of journal you can chuck in your rucksack and not worry about. The full grain finish makes each book unique and the tone and grain of your journal may vary from the image shown. The covers are held closed by a wraparound bootlace cord finished with two movable leather beads, so you can find your own way of tying it up.
