Midnight Black Leather Notebook

This slim black leather notebook will slip into your leather bag for those moments when lightning  strikes. Midnight is that moment when all is dark, but also when inspiration comes alive. Open your leather notebook and begin to write – darkness can be clear and bright! 

Watch the Stars Appear

As our black leather notebook is filled, we flip back and recall all the gems we’ve mined and the sparkle of newfound insight and knowledge. Pressing into a project, a business plan, even a novel we’re writing – all this takes the risk of wading into the unknown, the cavernous “out there.” As we step into the darkness, we start to see the stars come out. 

Product Features

The seven colorful swatches of Inspire collection leather notebooks

Leather With Character

We only work with premium, full-grain, African leather, which we perfect with classical stitching and binding methods. Our high-quality leather is strong and long lasting, and its unique leather patina will emerge naturally as you use it, giving your journal its own distinctive character.

Back Pocket Built In

Just like your favorite pair of jeans, we’ve woven our design into the inside back pocket of our Inspire notebooks.  Each notebook contains end sheets and pocket in 200 gsm Leatherpress logo paper colored to match. Keep your bits of beauty, scraps of story, or your ticket to inspiration close at hand.

Binding Craftsmanship

Our journals make use of Smyth sewing, a technique developed by the Ireland-born American bookbinder, David McConnell Smyth, in the late 1800s. It was Smyth who first sewed collections of folded pages together by thread in a method still known today for its strength and durability.
Elastic Closure Leather Notebook

Our Signature

Every Leatherpress journal comes complete with carefully considered details and finishing touches, featuring an accordion-style storage pocket on the inside back cover of all Inspire journals as well as a heat-debossed Leatherpress logo on the back. The elastic close keeps your best thoughts secure!
