Journal lovers, sketchbook keepers, and analog fiends — People of the books! We’ve added a new color of locally sourced veg tanned leather – an undulating olive green that we've called Carson — to our collection. They are ready for your stories, musings and sketches. Like Harper and Jackson, they are lined with antique textiles and are here to stay.
Our new Carson journals are also the perfect pairing for spring creatures and plants – a delightful way to celebrate the majestic emergence of the 17 year Brood X Cicada (learn more on Ologies Cicadology podcast!), and some of our favorite Native Spring Plants! Look in the engraving options for these artwork options.
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.
Custom Quote Engraving

The journal is beautifully made & the engraved quote turned out lovely. I have several journals in black with quotes engraved on the cover, too. I love them all but the engraving shows up especially well on the green. It feels quite special to have such a beautiful & personalized book to fill with thoughts & images.

This is my entrée into the world of fine journals and I must say, I love it. I haven’t created in it yet and look forward to using this paper and making it mine. I like that this is a permanent offering which is why I took the plunge. I haven’t yet found a journal I’m smitten with and I believe this will leave me starry eyed.

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!
