Custom Order Leather Art Journal Planner Elegant Personal Diary (530)

This large and elegant art journal & planner is another example of what custom journal making is all about. Having carte blanche from your client is what most artisans strive for and this truly bound handmade book stands as representative of the quality bookmaking found at NewSouthBooks. Read my reviews then tell me what you'd like to have in a bound leather journal. And that's important to remember, important when considering who you'd like to make your book. 'Bound'! No loose floppy stitching, no Coptic stitched books. Bound as in old world binding. This is what I do at NewSouthBooks. So decide on your specs. Carefully choose a color and type of hide. How many pages do you need? Lined? What weight paper is best for you? What to include for making your journal personal. Images, old photos? Maybe script or poetry. Write me, ask me, let me advise you. It's what you pay me the big bucks for and I don't mind earning it
