Creation can be hard won, with hours agonizing over the details of a single word. The professionals tell you to write and rewrite—that’s what all those authors you idolize have done, again and again. Words turn on the paper like iron in a blacksmith’s tongs, til slowly, methodically, your vision emerges in technicolor.
You’ve spent years with your grandchildren teaching them to tie a fly and all the knots they’ll ever need to know. Consider this their manual for generations to come.
Fountain pens glide over the 100gsm paper, leaving no trace on the backside. A heavier weight than the paper you find in most journals adds to the heritage quality of this journal, with this acid-free paper ready for writing, recording, even sketching.
A hubbed spine wraps around each Artisan journal, stretching an inch or so onto the front and back covers. These volumes contain twice as many pages as your typical journal — these Smyth-sewn bindings and hubs make for a classic look and a tactile feel.
Full Grain South African leather combines in two-color combinations on these journals. Top stitching between the binding and covers adds a hand crafted feel. Expect these bindings to weather beautifully, developing with softness and flexibility over time.
You’ll love these journals for yourself, but the presentation makes them perfect gifts. Each Artisan journal is double sleeved – one charcoal sleeve for the journal, and another outside sleeve complete the package. Elegant and recyclable.
