Enjoy writing in a unique, quality bound journal that will endure through the years. Each journal is individually designed; no two are alike. Journals are hand-created, using only archival materials, including:
- genuine leather
- acid-free paper
- hand designed end papers
- archival structural materials
- ribbon marker(s)
A variety of quality materials and solid skin leathers are used, all of the highest grade. No bonded leather, faux leather, or PU (PolySynthetic) materials are ever used. Natural quality leather hides are the most durable and beautiful materials available for an enduring journal that will withstand daily use.
Choose from the finest soft hides to thick hides to short-pile-fur that are velvety soft to the touch.
Journals can be custom-created according to personal taste or designed for a special occasion. Lined journals, albums or blank-page sketchbooks are available as well as diaries, travel journals, and guest books.
An assortment of papers are used for end sheet designs. Mary Ellen personally designs and creates papers in-house at bookbinding arts.
Papers from other countries are occasionally selected to specifically coordinate with, and compliment, the leather that is used on the cover.
