A very handsome handmade leather journal (truly bound like all my books) with a really neat Southwestern feel and look. I sand distressed the leather until it has the feel, the tactile sensation of suede then placed a slender leather lapel on the cover. Little design touches like this distinguish my journals so when you own one, you lend to your very own distinction. HAA! The color scheme remains true with hues of the desert, sandstone and the distant mesa. With 80 writable/recordable pages, there's plenty for you to record a lost map, sketch ancient images from the ruin's wall or maybe just start an urban short story on the commuter train. Everyone will recognize you for the true explorer you are
