5-oz natural full-grained vegetable-tanned, buffalo hide leather cover, premium grade designer's journal in A5 portrait format. The paper block is comprised of 120-page, 170 gsm, acid-free textured Swedish Maple Ivory paper. The paper is specially formulated for designers' and creative professionals' media including ink, pencil, coloured-pencils, pastel, marker, acrylic and water painting, printmaking and collage-making. Each signature of the paper stock is meticulously hand-stitched and bound to perfect alignment.
The journal's robust leather strap-and-keeper design and page-marker ensure decades of use without slackening or unravelling. The strap and keeper are saddle-stitched by hand - a time-honoured method in leather crafting.
Natural grain pattern, unique to each hide, can be seen on the leather and will acquire a beautiful natural satin lustre over time. As the leather protects the paper stock for decades, the value of the journal increases when design and artistic contents are deposited.
