Journal is brown rather than the red as shown in the catalog and it is harder to see the raven design.

I bought too of them for Christmas. Found out they were back order but thought I could push it. When they finally arrived; the cover material is poor quality,and one book had a crease on the cover. Look for something better!

I bought this lovely little tome for my sister in law. She loved it and said that she will put her musings in it! The leather cover is very nice with great latch.
A magical journal
Nov 10, 2014 | Posted By GravityDefyingBird from Lancaster, PA United States
This is a beautiful artifact and no catalog or website can do justice to the aroma of the leather and paper. The latch seems set in upside down, which means that unless you push the latch all the way in until it clicks lightly, it may fall open because of gravity. But that's really a nitpick. The paper is clearly handmade and slightly bumpy, so if you write with fountain pens, you want a flexible nib that doesn't catch easily. The paper seems like it would take graphite well, if you like to sketch your thoughts in between words. Note that the front design does not repeat on the back -- there you get clearly hand-tooled vines and tiny butterflies that somehow have a very regal look. Speaking of hand-tooling, that's why I took a point off: there was clearly a slight hand-tooling mistake involving placing the raven's body. It's hard to see unless you look closely, but the raven's throat and back lines seem doubled. That's part of the personal touch, I guess -- although I would have preferred a cleaner impression for what I paid, it's a low-level blooper. Not like the raven has two heads. Still, quality control could have caught that earlier... ah well. It's still a physically beautiful journal, a great object to hold in your hands and a potential great pleasure for you or a friend. Unlined, handmade paper is sewn into the spine in signatures, not glued. It's magic holding it... as I said, that aroma is something you can't capture in text, but book lovers know it!
