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 black and brown 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.
I ship via USPS Priority Mail, which gets things anywhere in the US in typically two to four days.

The journal came out even better than expected! The quality is phenomenal, the engraving precise--it feels unlike any book I've ever held in my hands before! Jonathan even left a personal note on the invoice thanking me for my order. He is a true craftsman, well worth the money spent!
Professional with quick responses to requests. The book turned out amazing and I was very pleased with the product Jonathon produced. I appreciate the craftsmanship. Thank you!
The journal is beautifully made! Jonathan made the journal to my exact specifications. I'm so happy with it and would recommend his journals!
I ordered this journal for everyone in the office to sign or comment for a retirement gift of a gentleman that has been with the company for 40 years. When I received it I was blown away with how wonderful it had turned out. I'm mean I got pictures in advance but they do not do the actual product justice. I would and will be highly recommending Jonathan Day to others Thank you so very much.
