This book is made in the traditional way, with pages sewn in signatures. The book uses watermarked 100% cotton ivory Southworth resume paper. The covers are thin strong plywood, lightly stained, and soft cream-colored leathers. Leather bands go all the way around the book, front and back, and snap close with two magnetic snaps.
The edges and corners of the wood have been sanded and slightly rounded. The wood has been stained with MinWax Special Walnut stain. I was going to varnish the boards, but I love the feel of the bare wood, so I just sanded them down a bit with Emery paper.
The horizontal leather bands wrap around, and close the book with magnetic snaps. These open easily, but close firmly.
This book is a delight to look at, and to feel in your hands, and will be a delight to use. Leather and wood being what they are, the book you get will look a bit different from the book pictured.

Before buying the wood and leather-bound journal, I corresponded a few times with Mr. Day to ask a few questions and to know whether my purchase would arrive on time, and he answered me almost immediately with all the details I needed to know before purchase.
A few days after the purchase, the product arrived right on time and was everything I was hoping it'd be. My girlfriend was delighted to receive it as a Christmas gift.
