This one is cut from a yummy piece of caramel-colored pebbly cowhide. Again, the wrap-around seemed so clean and nice that I didn't want to ruin it with a visible closure so I used a Velcro patch glued on the inside to keep the book closed.
The blank journal has eight signatures of six pages each, total 96 pages (192 both sides). The paper is hand-torn 70 lb ivory felt finish paper. The end papers are a dark brown patterned paper with a subtle lacy print. The long stitch binding is done with dark brown waxed linen thread using a variegated stitch length for design reasons.
Yep, a nice journal.
