Medium Brown Leather Art Journal / Photo Album

$89.00

In stock and ready to ship!

This one-of-a-kind sketchbook/journal is covered in thick, luxurious full-grain cow leather. This leather retains its natural grain and has been aniline dyed throughout the thickness. In fact, you won’t want to put your book down once you get your hands on it. This leather will get better with age and use - scratches and blemishes just rub right out!

Medium brown textured leather cover with black leather strap closure
96 blank pages 8 1/2" wide by just shy of 7" high
Pages are Canson Editions in vanilla, 250 gsm
Thick pages are great for mixed media, including light watercolor, and photographs
Soft cover, longstitch style opens fully for ease of use
Stitching in espresso thread
Use for an art journal, mixed media journal, sketchbook, or photo album


REFILL SERVICE
Because the leather cover will last much longer than it takes to fill the pages inside, I am able to refill your journal with comparable paper upon request, price dependent on current price of paper.

Your album is very sturdy, but some simple care is required to maintain it in original condition.
