Leather Journals




Samuel Peyp's was a master of journal writing...... A 17th Centuary Gentleman that helped us understand more about the 1600's just because he kept a diary.

I am wondering how many people keep diaries these days. I had one when I was in my teens and wish I had continued sometimes..... maybe everyone is blogging instead.
Not quite so personal as sneeking up to your room or going for a long walk and finding a quite spot to sit, think and write.

So we decided to make some up and see if people would be interested.

Bound in the finest waxed hide leather and handmade in Somerset, our flap and tie journals have a simple but traditional look.
Black Cat Bindery offer these journals in 2 different sizes 295mm x 210mm { A4} and the 210mm x 150mm { A5} and they are available in 4 different colours.
Rich dark red, black, chocolate brown and tan.
Each journal has 144 pages { 288 sides} of quality off white 150gsm writing / drawing paper and is bound in quality waxed hide leather. The word Journal has been blind embossed in a script font on the right hand bottom corner
Your journal can also be individually personalised with initials or name in gold, silver or blind embossed and comes in a presentation gift box. If you have any specific embossing needs or changes please email us to discuss.
