$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

    Jackson journal

    This book was a birthday gift. It was opened a week early and caused me to receive a thank you note with more hearts and happy faces than I could count.

    I think it was a success. As with everything else I’ve purchased from you, the quality and style were impeccable.

    Lovely Journal

    I now have three of Peg and Awl’s handcrafted journals and I have to say I love each and everyone of them. The craftsmanship of the leather, down to the stitching of the paper signatures are so meticulous. I enjoy both writing and art journaling in them.
