Aldo Leopold – Coptic Journal


Here at Peg and Awl we are traditionally quite traditional. Yet we have lately enjoyed experimenting with modernity – combining the traditional with the modern – and it has proved quite fun!

So here we shall introduce, Emmett – our new laser machine! With Emmett’s assistance, we have been able to add some of our favourite handwritten quotes – from the journal of yours truly – to our Coptic Bound books.

Upon the cover we have engraved these words:

“There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.”
—Aldo Leopold

The Coptic Bound Journal, hand-stitched with antique flax linen upholstery thread and covers of reclaimed Walnut is great journal for sketching and writing and opens flat for easy use. We use 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.

Each journal cover will vary in grain and indications of the wood’s prior use.

- Available in Walnut
- Hand-torn, hand stitched, line-free Strathmore drawing paper
