New: Travel Journals

by Susan Green November 25, 2013

Calling all adventurers! I'm pleased to present the Travel Journal. Each opens with an inspiring travel themed quotation, from Oscar Wilde to Mark Twain, Tolkien to T S Eliot. The pages each have a space to record the date and location, and at the back of the book you'll find an In Case Of Emergency section to record your personal, medical and legal information.

Buy ready to ship in Dark Slate Blue and Tan with the Mark Twain quotation:

Alternatively use my Bespoke Service to choose your colours and quotation, and you could ask me to print a dedication page, too, if you like. 

They're bound in goatskin leather in the Longstitch with Linkstitch style, a binding in use since the 15th century that's renowed for its durability and flexibility. There are 192 pages of cartridge paper which will take all pens and pencils, dry-medium artwork and which will take glued inclusions such as ticket stubs, postcards, photographs and so on.

So whether you or your gift recipient are about to take a GAP year, are recently retired and plan to make the most of your free time, or are about to set off on your annual leave, take one of these Travel Journals with you - it will be your faithful companion.  

Here are the quotations:

 

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. - Mark Twain

 

A journey is best measured in friends rather than in miles - Tim Cahill

 

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train. - Oscar Wilde

 

Not all those who wander are lost. - J R R Tolkien

 

The journey not the arrival matters. - T S Eliot

 

This is the sort of travel journal that would have reassured my old headmaster, who used to say: "Be careful out there!".
