A5 Leather Journal: Red & Tan

Size Guide

£149.00 GBP

This exquisite A5 Leather Journal is hand bound in the finest quality goatskin with exposed spine stitching and a leather thong to close. It contains 256 pages of unlined paper with traditional hand-torn deckle edges. This premium quality paper is a delight to write on with fountain pen, ballpoint, biro or pencil.

This softcover leather notebook is flexible yet hardwearing thanks to its binding style and archival materials. It's a joy to use because the leather is incredibly tactile: warm and smooth to the touch, it's slightly glossy with a beautiful hand-polished natural grain.

The pages are collected into eight signatures stitched through the leather cover in the 15th century Longstitch with Linkstitch binding, a style that ensures the pages lie flat on a desk for ease of use. A colophon on the final page gives details of the maker, materials and binding style for authenticity.

SIZE: A5 medium portrait 8.5 x 6 inches / 21 x 15 cm.

DELIVERY: made to order, please allow up to 4 weeks plus delivery from the UK. However if you have an earlier deadline please get in touch, as I'd love to help.
