This Purple & Teal leather journal / sketchbook is individually handmade in stunning, glossy goatskin that is tactile, warm and smooth to the touch. Thanks to its unique binding style - the Longstitch with Linkstitch - it's flexible and easy to use, allowing you to write up to the edges of each page, either held in the hand or flat on a desk. The binding is also very robust so it will last your lifetime, meaning it's a real investment that will bring many years of pleasure. With 224 pages of Mohawk Superfine Smooth plain paper that's ideal for all writing instruments, the journal features a quick-close magnetic snap closure that doubles up as a penholder.

This leather journal is hand bound in beautifully tactile Peach goatskin with Pale Green stitching along the spine and a Natural leather thong to close. It has hand marbled endpapers and 192 pages of 118gsm Mohawk Superfine Smooth paper with hand torn deckle edges, perfect for writing or drawing.
I used the Longstitch with Linkstitch binding style because it is both functional and decorative; it makes the book very strong yet flexible so it lies open on a desk for ease of use and allows you to write up to the edge of each page. The final design details - the closing flap with rounded edges and the leather thong (which you can tie in a variety of ways) - keep the contents safe.
