Oyster Gray Leather Journal

Pass along the beauty of traditions. Year after year, your meals, your gatherings, all with elements of the same, some different, saying hello to some and goodbye to others. All done with planning and class. Like your loveliest table settings, our oyster gray journal provides the beautiful backdrop to a party of ideas.  

Legacy Journal

Pride of heritage is the prerogative of the older generations, while curiosity stirs the young.  Preserve tradition and pass along its secrets. Write them all down in this leather journal, perfect as a keepsake and a volume to pass along the generations.  Give one to a grandparent, asking them to write down their life’s story and the stories of holidays and occasions past.  Or, give it to that enterprising child as a research project.

Leather With Character

We only work with premium, full-grain, African leather, which we perfect with classical stitching and binding methods. You’ll be delighted with our high-quality, strong and long lasting leather. As a bonus, see your journal’s unique patina emerge naturally as you use it, giving your journal its own distinctive character.

Paper Perfection

Our ivory acid-free paper has been selected for its opacity and exceptional ability to absorb ink. The pages are 80gsm, a paper weight that lends itself to a smooth and elegant writing experience, while the end sheets are a firm and luxurious 200gsm.

Binding Craftsmanship

Our journals make use of Smyth sewing. David McConnell Smyth, an Irish-American bookbinder, developed this technique in the late 1800s.  Smyth was the first to sew collections of folded pages together by thread in a method still known today for its strength and durability.

Our Signature

Every Leatherpress journal comes complete with carefully considered details.  We finish our Heritage journals with gilded pages, a table of contents, and a gold debossed Leatherpress logo on the front right corner.
