This A5 Leather Journal or Sketchbook is hand bound in the finest quality Navy Blue leather with Tan exposed spine stitching. It contains 192 pages of quality 140gsm 'all-media' recycled cartridge paper, making it a very useful book for writing or artwork. A leather thong that you can tie in a variety of ways keeps your books securely closed.
The special Longstitch with Linkstitch binding has been in use since the 15th century and provides this softcover book with a flexible but reliably robust structure. The pages will lie flat on a desk for ease of use and, because no glue is used and all the materials are archival, your book will last your lifetime.
This Journal / Sketchbook is a joy to own and use as the leather is incredibly tactile. It's warm and smooth to the touch with a fine grain texture. It will be much loved by anyone who appreciates heritage craftsmanship and natural materials. A colophon on the final page gives binding, materials and maker details for authenticity.
SIZE: A5 medium portrait 8.5 x 6 inches / 21 x 15 cm.
MADE TO ORDER: please allow up to 4 weeks plus delivery from the UK. If you have an earlier deadline do get in touch as I'd love to help if I can.
REVIEWS: "These journals really are made with the finest materials, the quality of the leather is evident from touch alone." Charlotte, West Midlands
ALTERNATIVES: Leather Memory Book: Navy Blue & Tan
NOTES: The leather is most definitely a dark Navy Blue, not Royal - it's tricky to convey with varying light levels in the bookbinding studio! If you would like a swatch before purchasing do email email@example.com
