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 rugged, warm chestnut brown leather. This beautiful vegetable tanned leather has a distinctive natural grain which has been brought out by working the leather until it has become relaxed and supple, without losing any of its toughness. The grain varies across the hide making each journal unique. And it even smells as good as it looks! This is the sort of journal that you can throw in your rucksack 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.
