    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    wonderful journal, I'm really rough on everything and this one has held up beautifuly, it's flexible, durable, just the right size and if you have a heavy hand like i do you won't go thru the pages and permanent ink won't bleed thru, you can also glue pictures or postcards or wahtever into it and it holds up well for those things too!! I'm buying my second one, i'm SO glad it's still being sold! buy 2, i promise you;ll use them both or give one as a gift.

    LOVE IT

    had this journal for 2 years, just finished writing on the last page. The pages look great and absorb ink really well, its the perfect size to carry around with me wherever I go, no lines, great cover, and never falls apart. I treat my journals roughly, and this thing is a little beaten up, but no pages fell out and the cover has stayed sturdy. I recommend it to anyone who needs a place to write down spur-of-the-moment ideas and observations.

    Not Shipped

    I just ordered this along with a few other books, but this was the main focus of my entire purchase. However, I just received a notification email stating that my order could not be fulfilled and that they were not shipping this item to me! The book is lovely and unlined (my preference because of the ability to sketch freely) but I will unfortunately not be getting my hands on it :(

    beautiful and functional

    I have filled many journals over my years and many of them are quite bland but this little thing is beautiful, feels wonderful in my hands, and is a pleasure to write in. the paper is soft too (high linen content), and well bound. the leather smell is wonderful too :) The embroidery is cute but not necessary, IMO. The only things I'd love to see is is the same book but in black instead of brown, and with LINED pages, but otherwise, this is my favorite journal ever.

    Its amazing and the perfect size.Its like a sketchbook which is awesome cause i needed one.Its a good size because its small enough to fit in my back pocket.I love the paper because it looks authentic.The let is that its hard to erase and leaves pencil marks but beside that it was great.

    Fantastic Journal!

    I've had this journal since 2007 and am still writing in it(mainly due to the fact that I'm a slow writer) and has held up amazingly. I've taken it on trips, banged it around in my purse and backpack, and it's still in great condition. It's hard to erase at times due to the parchment but that's to be expected when buying. All in all, I suggest this to anyone looking for a new journal.

    Leather Embroidered Brown Journal

    I purchased this journal for friends who will be traveling to Germany this summer. The wife loves to keep notes while traveling and she loved this journal. It's small enough to keep in a handbag and the rough edges of the pages gives it an inspirational touch.

    I absolutely ADORE this journal.
    My best friend and I were splurging at B&N after Christmas, and there was one last copy of this journal on the shelf.
    We were both struck by how simply genuine it looked, a piece of artwork in and of itself. She turned to me and told me that I HAD to get it because it suited my style and personality perfectly. I couldn't be happier. The leather is absolutely wonderful, and the paper has a beautiful, soft texture. I've been using a fountain pen, and the paper is thick enough for no bleed-through.
    I think that other than the whole journal itself, my favorite part is the binding and the closure. The binding reminds me of when my art teacher taught me how to bind a sketch book a few years ago, so it gives the little book that coveted hand-made, antique feel. The string closure is fun to play around with. I feel that there is a bit of personality that goes into a way someone ties their journal closed. That just made it all the more personal after I found a method that worked for me.
    It's truly the little things that make this journal so utterly perfect. I've never been a fan of unlined journals, but again, I love how personality shines through in penmanship and flow. This journal feels like it is truly my own, and there is nothing like finding that one journal that feels worthy of filling with your dreams and adventures and musings. Honestly the best $17 I've ever spent.

    Fall in love with this little journal.

    I have the non-embroidered version of this journal (which seems to no longer be available, hence reviewing here), and there is nothing I don't love about it. The design is elegantly simple, with the pages laced in and a string tie to keep it closed, so no need to worry about faulty or aging binding glue, cracked spines, or awkward metal/magnetic/flap closing mechanisms. The leather is ridiculously soft, making this little journal an absolute pleasure to hold in your hands, as well as allowing the cover to be flexible for a variety of writing positions. The paper is a nice heavy weight, too, and very slightly textured for a classy look and feel. There are a good number of pages, and they are blank, so writing, sketching, taking notes, etc. are all fair game. All in all, it's small, lovely, well-crafted, and adorable--a great writing companion, especially if you want to stash it for on-the-go journalling.

    I just received my journal today and I am already in love with it. it is small and convenient to take with me anywhere and very cute. I have never had a leather journal before so this is my first one!! One thing that I really did not expect was the paper on the inside! A lot of people were saying that it is like parchment which i dont know what that is like but to me it seems like it is homemade paper and I LOVE that soooooooooo much. I haven't written in it yet but I plan on doing so very very sooon! I think everyone needs something like this to keep them wanting to journal!!!!

    This journal is beautiful. Smells great, has a rainbow braided string enclosure (wish it was tan or a neutral color), soft to the touch, and the paper almost feels like parchment to me. This was an impulse buy -- glad I got it.

    I have one of these and it has stood up for years! My kid has chewed on it, my cat has chewed on it, I use it as a place to set my drink...it still lives on. I use a dip pen to write and the ink will not bleed through. It is just a great little journal. Plan to pick up a couple next time I order journals.

    Great

    I love the design on the front. I like wrapping the string around it when I'm done writting.

    Love It!

    I bought this Journal for myself and my oldest daughter. We love the look and feel of this journal as well as it's smell of leather. The pages are made of a high linen content and makes for easy writing. The ink does not smear or bleed through. My oldest daughter likes the way it ties shut. She said it gives you the feeling of what it would have been like in the 17 or 18 hundreds. I like to write with a fountain pen. The paper makes it so much easier to write with. We love our journal and would highly recommend it to everyone!
