$102.00 - $164.00

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])
- 2 sizes available
- Minimally packaged with a belly band

    I LOVE my new journal.

    I LOVE my new journal. The leather is lovely and rich, the old tiny checked textile has the best wee texture and pattern, the journal pages themselves are smooth and I just love the hand stitched signatures and deckle edge of the paper. You placed the absolute perfect quote by Anais Nin on the front and it’s cool how the letters of it, and the wee signature on the back are etched, almost carved, right into the leather.

    I really love my new journal and have already made two drawings in two days. Thank you for the perfect companion book!
