    Durable and gorgeous. Feels like $$$$$$

    I'm a physics PhD student and take notes that I want to be able to revisit throughout my career. These gorgeous journals work perfectly for me - unlined, so I can draw graphs and take notes and draw arrows and write equations - and gorgeous, so I can always keep them displayed on a shelf for easy reference. I picked these partly for their old-school quality feel, partly for the unlined pages, and partly because the tie means fewer parts to break. I like knowing that if the string comes undone I can just re-sew it. But after using about 8 of these for my classes every day for the last couple years, I've not had a single loose thread or broken tie, even after hastily stuffing these into my messenger bag between classes all the time. Highly recommend!!

    A rugged journal

    This is a great journal for anyone who enjoys camping, hiking or everyday adventure. I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan and I thought to myself 'If Indy was looking to buy a journal, I'm sure he would think about getting this one'.

    Unbelievable Value

    To put it short, this type of notebook is typically $70+ anywhere else. While the leather is roughly cut and the paper may not be expensive handmade paper, this thing is worth WELL over what the selling price is. Rough, rugged, long-lasting, simple but elegant style, great size, and thick paper perfect for wet media.... this thing is a hell of a sketchbook/notebook for only $16. I have been looking for a simple sketchbook like this for ages and have yet to find one under $50.

    Beautiful journal.

    I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I went into the store looking for the small one and ended up buying the large. The paper is wonderful to write on and the pages do a wonderful job of staying down. It's the best journal I've ever owned. I would recommend it to anyone. The beauty of the journal is, alone, enough to inspire anyone to write.

    May Not Be Suited As A Travel Journal...

    Ruggedly handsome and durable. At least that's what I thought until mine started falling apart only after a couple of months and 30 pages of doodling, scrawling and writing. Unfortunately, it was beyond the 30-day policy that B&N wouldn't replace it. So I guess f your journal falls apart, it should fall apart sooner THAN later so you get it replaced. But wait. Wouldn't you expect a journal like this to be durable and last you for months and months? What I bought to take as a travel companion to capture memories gave up on me just after my third trip. Now it's just sitting idly in my bookshelf. I tried repairing the spine where the binding string came loose and it just got worse. Anyway, I know most of you guys have great experiences with your journal. Unfortunately, I didn't. I guess if you really like it, examine it closely so you don't end up having an unfinished journal like mine. For journaling your travel, I'd recommend Moleskine hard cover that takes beating a lot better.

    Journal

    excellent if you don't need lined paper and enjoy inserting items in between pages (as the journal allows for plenty of expansion).

    I kind of feel like I've wasted money on this journal. Although the
    cover is pretty, the binding sucks and the pages are YELLOW. Very
    unexpected. I was expecting a book-like journal with white pages :(

    Wow, I was looking for a journal that would inspire me to write again.
    This is that book. The leather smells very strongly at first, almost over-powering, but it's calming down. I've had this for about a week and it's just perfect. It's comfortable to write in and unlined. The pages are thick and yellowed. I use a fountain pen and the ink doesn't bleed, so it's the perfect companion for my fountain pen. I write and sketch in this book and it's awesome for both.
    The quality of this journal is luxurious for sure. Sewn in pages and a wrap around leather tie really make the whole experience.
    The cover isn't a heard cover, but there are a lot of pages, so it doesn't flop around. I would buy another of these for sure.

    Indiana Jones style journal

    I'm an actor and Classical studies archeologist. When it comes to my Classical studies career, i do research and write them down on my journal, also including traveling and drawing maps.

    As an actor, i write down my biography of beginning career of acting to the present world. Its worth it. Great quality for excellent price! I have seven of these now!

    Wonderful Journal

    Hi everyone~<BR/><BR/>I would definitely recommend this journal to any of my friends. Its WONDERFUL!!!! I've had it for only a day and have used about 5 pages, in fact I liked it so much I got the smaller version in black for a pocket notebook.<BR/><BR/>This journal is an amazing inspiration for writing, I am an amateur writer and this journal just makes you feel like your back in time. It made with amazing quality! at first i didn't think i was going to like the way the pages are split up into 4 different parts but after a while i got used to it and it's still great. and i love that there are no lines. its great!!! so if i wanna sketch something Im thinking of nothings in the way.....<BR/><BR/>If your looking for a good journal you can stop right now! you've found what you need<BR/> and inexpensive too!

    An Elegant Heirloom

    I was a bit skeptical upon purchasing this journal. I was hoping to find a lined version. However, upon reciept of it, I found that it was in reality what I really needed. I write my journal as a way to preserve the information about my life and our times for my future generations, as not much information on my heritage is not availble, and I don't want that to happen to my children, grandchildren, etc. This journal will provide an excellent, elegant heirloom that I will be proud to leave for my children. I already plan to purchase two more, one for each of my brothers!

    I bought this journal specifically to use with my dip pen, and it works beautifully! I use it with Winsor and Newton calligraphy ink, and it works very well. The leather is also wonderful, and the un-lined pages allow me to write smaller or larger depending on how I'm feeling that day. I journal a lot, so it was important for me to have a journal that stayed open and was comfortable enough for me to write 12 pages in.
    I am definitely going to be buying a couple more of these!

    It's beautiful, it's soft to the touch, and every time I write in it I feel like it can keep all my secrets hidden from the world, all wrapped up in its little leather cord. I love it.

    Much better than I thought it would be. The paper quality is great, and it's the perfects size, right in between too big and too small. It also has four sections which I was very surprised about.
