from Portland, OR United States
I've been keeping journals for over 40 years, and the collection is one of my most prized possessions, a record of my journey through life and around the world. And of all the journals I've kept, this one is by far the best. The quality of the leather was a joy to touch, the ease at which it opened and laid flat for writing, and the excellent paper on which ink holds and seems to never fade. For those serious about their journals, I can't recommend this one enough. Well honestly, I use the smaller version (8 X 5.75). Thanks for the quality craftsmanship!
