This is an excellent journal and a wonderful companion to document one's journey in life. I've had mine for just over a month, and I'm a third of the way through the journal. The paper is excellent in quality and the leather has proven very durable, as I do write outdoors. My only complaint regards the fleur-de-lis graphic on the the bottom of every page. A bit annoying, but an inspriation for me to cover every page with my scribblings. Overall, a joy to own.
This is a beautiful leather journal with 240 pages. My only problem with it is that I write in pen, not pencil, and the little holes to hold a writing utensil are too small to fit a standard pen. For the price, I expected the binding to be of higher quality and more flexible. As far as I can tell, the pages are bound with glue, not stitches. Other than that, it's a beautiful soft leather, and the pages are very inviting.
I LOVE this journal. I wrote in it everyday from Jan - July 2013. I love that it has a pencil holder. I love that it snaps shut (to keep in loose memories). I love the ribbon page marker. The only reason I rated it a 4 and not a 5 is because some pages in the front came undone from the binding which was irritating since I am not hard on it, but thankfully the snaps are a secondary way to secure the pages in. Why aren't all journals as convenient as this one!?
A very nice journal. The paper is high quality and the leather is very smooth. I just bought the journal, so I am hoping that the binding will become more flexible with time. I'm left handed and the cover is not yet used to the idea of being open. I also prefer to write in pen, and my preferred brand of pen is slightly too large for the hole (though I'm hoping that that too will loosen with time) so I can't simply slide it in absentmindedly. The little watermark design at the bottom of every page takes it from being austere and sterile and makes it slightly more warm.
