This is the Earthworks Journals A4 brown leather journal with our Retro, Swallow, Heart and Rose Tattoo 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 large size it's great for those of you with a lot to write about. It's ideal as a personal journal, diary or alternative / vintage wedding guestbook.

This is our version of a traditional old-school tattoo depicting symbols of love. Hearts and roses have always been symbols of pure love but the swallow has a more complex history. It was once popular with sailors as it was believed to carry their souls to heaven if they died at sea. It has now become a symbol of enduring love, as swallows mate for life. The scroll on this design can carry the text of your choice, please see the personalisation section below.
