Have you ever wanted a journal that feels great in your hand, fits your timeless and individual personality and just makes you want to write more?

Getting back to basics is what it takes.
It's nothing fancy... just the perfect combination of everything one could want in an Essential Journal... the perfect combination of Paper, Cover and the Size along with unparalleled functionality... all married together in one book.  OH and... having it personalized too.

Let's take these 1 at a time.

FUNCTIONALITY:
This journal is perfect whether you are left or right handed.  It will lie completely flat when opened, allowing you to write or draw right into the center gutter.  In fact, you can even fold it over on itself without any harm.

PAPER:
We thought of suggesting just one paper type for you but didn't want to limit your choices.
So whether you do only 1 thing in your journal or do many things like write and draw using many different tools... WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!

Now you can have a different paper for each refill.  And with this journal, paper upgrades are FREE

Below is a description of our papers.  See which one/s that suits best what you do.
Our papers are all 120gsm in weight which give them the body you will love  They will not feather or bleed with a fountain pen and are acid free.  And because you can write on both sides with any pen or pencil, it's like having twice the amount of usable pages you would have in a book with thinner paper.  We also hand tear all of our papers from larger parent sheets to give you the rough artisan look and feel.

Arches, from France, is the world's longest lasting paper (at least NASA thought so when it printed 250 artist proofs and launched them into outer space on the Shuttle Discovery in 1990).  It is moderately sized, has a slight tooth and is one of the finest multi use artist papers and perfect for your ballpoint, rollerball, pencil or broad nib/stubbed fountain pen.  It will not feather or bleed and you can write on both sides too.  It will handle watercolor and gouache washes, copic markers, colored pencils, graphite and... you can scrub it some too.  This paper is not only beautiful but it is the workhorse of papers for professional artists.

Frankfurt White and Creme, from Germany, have a harder finish with a beautiful wavy laid pattern and are recommended for a smooth write with your fountain pen, good opacity and will not feather or bleed.

COVER:
Why will this cover feel so awesome in your hand and make you want to write?

In addition to the paper inside, it's the soft & luscious full grain Italian leather with that classic leather scent, soft hand feel and deepening patina your use of it will create over time.

Your journal, timeless as it is, will only get better, more individual and become a closer companion to you over time.  It's man's second best friend :) if you will.  Like a dog, it can go with you everywhere, it draws out your inner self, it never talks back.  It's food is you discovering yourself and.... it doesn't pee on things.

Our exclusive leather is tanned in the Italian Alps by a 6th generation tannery.  There is simply nothing better in the world than Italian tanned leather using English cow.  We worked with this tannery for 2 years to develop it and it is unavailable anywhere else except at Frye Boots.  They loved our leather so much that they started using it to make their boots.

2 inside pockets for storing other things and the heavier 2.2mm cover will protect what's inside for many generations.

SIZE:
Yup... size totally matters and this is your size.  The outside dimensions are 6 x 9 inches and the sheet size is 5.5 x 8.5 inches.  There are 80 pages when you count pages like in a novel... one side of one sheet equals one page.

Our Innovative Solomon's Knot is what makes this book able to have the refills individually removable.

Our soft 2.2mm leather cover will protect your words and our "Even if Your Dog Eats It" guarantee will protect your investment.
