This is the Earthworks Journals A5 distressed dark brown leather journal with the Vegvisir sigil hand tooled onto the cover. This leather comes to us in pristine condition and we put it through various dying and staining techniques to give it a distressed look, this journal already has the feel of a well-travelled notebook. The covers are held closed by two 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, bushcraft notebook, ship's log or Book of Shadows.
D e s i g n
The Vegvísir is an Icelandic magical stave, one of several sigils which appeared in a 17th Century grimoire called Galdrabók (or, Book of Magic). The word 'vegvísir' translates to English as 'wayfinder' and the sigil was intended for use as protection for those travelling through rough weather. A perfect symbol for a travel journal (or, metaphorically, for life's journey in general!!)
