This exquisite A5 Leather Journal is hand bound in the finest quality goatskin with exposed spine stitching and a leather thong to close. This is a softcover book that's flexible but extremely practical and durable; it will last your lifetime.
It's bound with 256 pages of Mohawk Superfine smooth unlined paper with hand-torn deckle edge. The pages are collected into eight signatures, each stitched through the leather cover in a special binding style - the 15th century Longstitch with Linkstitch - which allows the pages to lie flat on a desk. A colophon on the final page gives details of the maker, materials and binding style.
This Journal is a joy to own and use thanks to its incredibly tactile leather; warm and smooth to the touch, the natural grain has been hand polished to a glossy finish. The inner surface provides a contrasting, slightly textured surface.
SIZE: A5 medium portrait 8.5 x 6 inches / 21 x 15 cm.
DELIVERY: in stock and ready to ship worldwide.
REVIEWS: written about a similar book bound in the same red leather: "These journals really are made with the finest materials, the quality of the leather is evident from touch alone. As we presented the journal to its recipient, the expression on her face was priceless." Charlotte, West Midlands
