Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go. ~E. L. Doctorow
This blue leather journal is 6.0in x 4.5in which makes it the perfect size for a purse or backpack. The leather is soft, but very durable.
There are 240 pages (counting front and back) of white 80lb (124gsm) paper that has a good tooth for writing or sketching. The paper is blank.
The pages have been hand folded, pressed and then divided into 6 signatures. The signatures were hand sewn into the leather with light blue waxed Irish bookbinding thread. The use of the long-stitch bookbinding method gives the journal fantastic binding strength as well as the ability to open completely flat so every inch of paper can be used.
The wrap-around cover keeps the paper safe and a dark brown cord holds everything together. The bookmark has been sewn to the covers and features an real skeleton key.
