This is the Earthworks Journals A5 brown leather journal with our Green Man design hand tooled onto the cover. It is bound in a single thick piece of vegetable tanned leather and has a beautiful, antiqued brown finish which picks out the design and natural markings in the full-grain leather; this makes each book unique. The covers are held closed by two tie cords finished with leather beads.
With its versatile size it's a great journal to either keep at home or carry around in your bag. It makes a great personal diary, travel journal or nature notebook.

This is our own Green Man design, we have based him on the traditional images that can often be found in medieval church architecture.
The Green Man never goes away, he has probably been with us since the dawn of humankind. He is the Pagan nature spirit of the forest, he represents that part of man that never left the primeval wildwood. In Celtic Europe he can still be found in church carvings. This powerful archetype has many decendants; Robin Hood; Merlin; Cernunnos; Herne the Hunter; Jack-in-the-Green and The Woodwose.
