Mega extras in this lovely hand bound leather journal / notebook in a vintage leather. I have a choice of other leather colours via the dropdownmenu - (Black,navy, sky blue, dk.brown, burgundy, purple, green or cream). Leather is a natural product and may have slight imperfections - this does not detract from it's beauty, rather it adds to its character.
I have named this journal "Phileas Fogg" after his "Around the World in 80 Days" travel adventures.
Perfect for use as a travelogue or diary with plenty of pockets for tickets, photos and other memorabilia from your trip.
The hand stitched signatures (book sections) are well spaced and the leather is generously cut to allow for stuffing with your special memorabilia.
Over time the leather will reflect it's journeys with you and develop its own patina and character.
Pages are made from a combination of envelopes, maps and high quality 130gsm acid free cartridge paper - perfect for all pen and art mediums.
In true journalling style, the envelope pages form little pockets to keep your pictures, tickets or other memorabilia. Packed with extra pull-outs with themed graphics and maps as suggestions and ideas for you to build on.
*All travel journals come with ephemera papers similar to those seen in the photos. They are secreted in the pages along with some additional surprises too* already making it nice and chunky - use my ideas or add your own!
I think this would be absolutely perfect to record memories of a special trip or honeymoon but could also be suitable as a journal, diary, sketch pad or scrapbook/photo album.
The pages are hand torn leaving slightly irregular edges which add to it's charm.
Each signature is carefully stitched to the spine in a classic long stitch design using a co-ordinating thread and embellished with beads.
All of my items are made from top quality vintage Spanish leather and completely hand cut, punched and stitched with care and attention.
Personalisation with two initials stamped into the leather can be included at no extra cost - please add these to the message box during checkout. If further customisation as shown as in picture 5 is needed, please purchase this add-on available in a separate listing:
