These large Journals or Sketch Books are extra-special. They are made of fine leather that is dyed by us with vegetable dyes, a process that allows the natural properties and texture of the leather to show through. We have two varieties available: A waxy Italian Calfskin dyed with Oak Bark and a textured Goatskin dyed with Walnut. The Journals are filled with the most luxurious drawing paper: a delightful, soft, cotton-rich Ingres, left with its torn, deckled edges. The pages are sewn to the leather cover with linen thread and when opened the journals lie flat on the table to allow you to draw, write, or sketch to your heart's content. When you are finished you can wrap around and secure the journal with the rustic hemp cord. With the Calfskin journal, we have added a little splash of colour by giving it some end sheets made from our Green 'En Soleil' paper.
Each journal measures 260mm x 180mm. These journals are robust and are designed to cope with a bit of rough and tumble and will only better and the leather softer with age and use.
