The Reef Blue Leather Notebook

A leather notebook like no other. A whiff of fresh sea air floats along with this reef blue notebook. Like the edge of the sea it’s named for, it encourages, adds a dimension unseen, carving out a new perspective on journaling. No more boring! Get a fresh perspective with this light and lovely notebook. 

Travel Notebook

A travel notebook offers space to record perspectives, to look for the extraordinary, to see how our ordinary becomes something new somewhere else – streets made of water, for example. Tuck train tickets, museum tickets, a restaurant receipt into the back pocket to pull out and muse over as you finish your writing entries. 

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!
