    A reviewer

    I used this journal for roughly 5 months and loved every minute of it. The leather makes it smell very friendly and its chunky size makes it beg to be written in. I'd recommend it more to people who do a lot of writing (say, at least a page or more per day) because of the large size. There is a fleur de lis that is in the middle of the last 3 lines of every page, but it's printed lightly and easily written over. The lines are not very far apart, but if you have somewhat large handwriting you will still probably have some room. Also, the pages are not very easily bled through. Overall, if you like journaling, do yourself a favor and buy it.

    Perfect

    This is the perfect journal for anyone who wants to write a LOT about whatever. At first, the number of pages seemed daunting to me, but I bought it anyway and filled it up in about 7 months. If you're an aspiring bestselling author and just someone like me who likes to write about whatever, buy it NOW!! The leather is really soft and the cover design is really cool. Plus, the pages are not easily bled through. It's a little on the bulky side if you want to take it places, but not bad. (It also makes an excellent gift for family members and good friends.)

    Best Journal Ever

    My colleagues gave me this journal as goodbye present. It is one of the best gifts I've ever received. I will be traveling in Europe this summer and plan to bring this magnificent journal along for the adventure.

    This is a beautiful journal

    I am giving this to my sister who is a novice writer so she can produce her first travel book. The journal is very luxurious and looks like a book, not a journal. It'll be a neat present for a budding writer I think

    Amazing Journal

    This journal is truly amazing. It looks epic in nature from the soft leather antique map and it will make you want to go out and travel the world just to write in it. And don't let the site image fool you - this journal is large. At 192 sheets (384 pages) this could last you months. The paper is failry thick as well and most types of pens should work on it without going through to the otherside.
    So if you're looking for a journal that not only looks epic but content is as well, then get this one

    Incredible Journal, Incredible Price

    The quality of the journal is outstanding, thick pages, beautiful lines and red ribbon page keeper. The outside is smooth authentic leather with an incredible print. I have had this for nearly a year now and have written numerous entries with virtually no visible wear, truly an incredible piece for the price. Usually journal's this good cost $60

    Highly Recommended

    This journal is SO very nice. I am a novice writer (I am only 15) and love to write down just about everything. This journal has inspired me greatly, and has a wonderful feel to it. The leather is very soft and it fits in to your hand like your old favorite book. I recommend this journal to anyone who is wanting something new but with a feeling of history backing it up.

    Absolutely and exactly what I wanted!

    This journal feels very sturdy in hands, pages feel thick enough and the leather, bookmark and pages just look beautiful because of the colors and textures. I bought this in order to serve as a travel journal for my trip to Asia like the UAE, China and India and so on. The journal with it's thickness just begs to be written in. THIS OVER EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS BY FAR!!! ITS IS ABSOLUTLY BEAUTIFUL!!! BUY IT!!! It is was really worth it.

    Outstanding Journal

    I bought this journal for myself a month ago. It contains high quality paper and the cover is beautiful. It is thick, so I would recommend this to anyone who writes often or likes to write a lot. You will not be disappointed.

    This is a beautifully crafted map-cover journal. I have thought about getting it for myself many, many times, but haven't yet. It is so elegant- just perfect for anyone who writes or keeps journals.

    This Journal is so lovely!! I just received it today, and it looks more beautiful in person. The picture does not do it justice. Furthermore, I am sort of a purest and was worried that my dip ink pen would leak through the pages but it does not, which makes this journal that much greater!! I am so excited to began writing in it! Great Buy, and for it being handmade, and made out of real leather I don' think you can find a better deal!!

    This is a high quality journal that is one of my favorite possessions. I write one page per day (front of page = day one, back of page = day two) and the journal is big enough to hold an entire year with two weeks extra.

    I love this baby!  I have a similar one from B&N which is the italian one, but this one is gorgeous, especially with the fact that I am going to be travelling.  The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I would like it to have a tie to keep it all closed.  But, I added one so its all good.  About 200 pages and very thick.  Smells fabulous and I love that it was handmade in Italy.  Great choice.

    I bought this journal a couple years ago and am now very close to needing a new one. I'm not your "every day" kind of writer, so it took me a little while to finish it up. I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever stuck with a journal... and I owe that in part to this specific one. It was just so beautiful, so soft, so wonderful to hold - that it just begged to be written in. This may sound weird, but I even loved the smell of it! What a wonderful journal! I'm glad they are still making it, because I will certainly be buying another one when I run out of pages in a few days.

    This is the only journal I have ever owned that I still love a year later! The leather is so soft. Even after heavy use and being thrown in my backpack or purse every day of the year, it shows no signs of falling apart. The only sign of wear mine has is the ink on the back fading a little but it doesn't make me like this book any less. I am going to be buying another one for next year!

    Gorgeous Journal

    I gave this to a good friend as a gift, and she told me it was the best gift she's been given. She adores it, and appreciates it very much. The leather is amazing at the touch, and their style is ideal for anyone who appreciates the world, and views themselves as a traveler.
