Just like the sturdy oak hand-tooled into both sides of the cover, this beautiful leather journal is strong enough to hold all your innermost thoughts and feelings. Actually, though, it's a journal cover. So you can use it again and again through the years simply by refilling it with a blank book insert. These inserts can be easily found at any art store. The blank book insert that comes as part of the journal, has 220 heavy bond paper with plenty of room for writing (or drawing). The heirloom quality journal cover, like most well-made leather products, ages with grace and becomes more beautiful with use.
