$50.00 - $210.00

Journal lovers, sketchbook keepers, and analog fiends! People of the books! We’ve finally constructed a staple journal made from new locally sourced veg tanned leather in both brown – Harper – and black – Jackson – that are ready for your stories, musings and sketches. They are lined with antique textiles and of course still boast all of the Peg and Awl journal goodness, but unlike all of the others, these two are here to stay.

Inside you’ll find line-free Strathmore drawing paper – thick, hand-torn, acid-free pages that work perfectly with ink, pens both thick and superfine, pencil, charcoal, and a myriad of other mediums. The pages are each hand-stitched with archival linen binder’s thread, shaped and re-enforced with linen tape and tarlatan and finished with a red and golden headband. The books can be carried daily and beat up. They are strong creatures.

- Local Pennsylvania sourced Vegetable Tanned Leather
- Antique fabric lining varies from journal to journal
- Hand-torn, hand-stitched, line-free Strathmore drawing paper (80 lb. [130 g/m²])
- 4 sizes available
- Minimally packaged with a belly band

    Beautiful Artful Tools!

    I got it as a birthday gift for my sister and she immediately began the ‘100 days’ P&A challenge, watercolor painting in the Harper journal!

    It just takes my breath away

    I am going to be regular customer for this one. Ok, as this is my first P&A sketchbook, I'll try other styles and sizes. But it is just beautiful. The Strathmore drawing paper is a treat and the fact that it's hand torn and not cut just breathes soul into it. The antique fabric lining is cut and applied with greatest care to detail and once the leather softens the pages seem to lie rather flat. It'll take a mindful second to break this in, but it helps to know that there is more where this came from. Thank you for your beautiful work.
